"Hey, Harvard! You Just Took $20 Million From A Terror Sponsor. What's Next?"

...."I'm going to North Korea World!

If Harvard clings to any principles at all anymore (a sketchy proposition at the moment), it is working overtime to abandon them ASAP. First there was the $20 million from Sheik bin Talal, who had previously given $27 million to support the murder bombers of the Al Aqsa Martyr Brigades; then the updated "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" from the Kennedy School of Government; and now Harvard's Alumni Association is leading guided tours to...NORTH KOREA!

Yes, that's right. The last backwater of Stalinism remaining, and the Harvard alums are signing up for a $636-a-night grand tour of Kim Jong Il's looney bin. And remember: "You will be expected to bow as a gesture of respect at the statue of Kim Il Sung." We wouldn't want to disrespect a guy responsible for millions of deaths via starvation, torture and the military spread of Communism, now would we?

And it must be noted yet again that this news story came, NOT from a Boston newspaper, but from the New York Post.

Way to go, Globe!
