Why Now?

I came across an article today that the Attorney General in Virginia has ordered all of the institutions of higher education in the state to rescind policies that ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.  It seems that the AG feels that the institutions don't have the authority to create their own policies (what?)  This seems to be the latest in a string of anti inclusiveness steps being taken by the newly elected leadership in Virginia. Hey Virginia: What's that sound??? It's the sound of your freedoms... fluttering away!   I can only hope that the good people who work in Higher Ed in Virginia rise up and fight this with everything that they have!
