So what do we do as Harvard makes itself ridiculous?
Sigh. We'd already adjusted to the news that Harvard had opened a disco (and bar), the better to, um, mount another franchise of ART Artistic Director Diane Paulus's The Donkey Show (at left). Now comes word that the world's self-proclaimed "greatest university" is also launching a Ralph-Laurenesque clothing line (sorry, "men's collection," at right). Gee, I guess that endowment must really be hurtin' - Harvard's now hawking drinks and doing patchwork to make ends meet! I suppose at this point I'm supposed to say something like "What next?" But I don't really want to know what's next.
