RIP, Ave Maria University
Read this post today at Envoy Encore:
Only a week after the Board of Trustees of Ave Maria College reaffirmed its commitment to continue the Michigan college through 2007, and to explore options to keep the school functioning after that, Thomas Monaghan announced that he wants the school shut down in 2007.
It's not definitive yet (what is, at AMU?), but it's part of the ongoing progression of that University towards total internal self-combustion. I had been reading Ed Peters' stuff on AMU last week, but I had to stop, because I was getting too depressed. And just before that I was reading the New Oxford Review's acrimonious assaults on Scott Hahn on Against the Grain. Reminds me of T.E. Lawrence's words to the Arabs, but applied to faithful Catholics: "So long as the Arabs fight tribe against tribe, so long will they be a little people, a silly people - greedy, barbarous, and cruel, as you are."
UPDATE: Holy Links, Batman. Jimmy Akin has links aplenty.
