I am glad I am at PHC

I am so thankful for the peace and freedom I enjoy here at PHC where we are encouraged to excel as opposed to Harvard where the students are pressured into lowering themselves to the least on campus...

I took this excerpt from Brit Hume's Political Grapevine (

Paper's Problem

Harvard's school paper, The Crimson, is urging students to boycott the new on-campus cleaning service Dormaid (search), launched by one of their fellow students a few weeks ago. The Crimson says Dormaid is "threaten[ing] our student unity" and "creating yet another differential between the haves and the have-nots on campus." The paper says, "Dorm life is one of the few common experiences left that all students, regardless of class or background, have to endure with a measure of equality. ... Hiring someone to clean dorm rooms is ... an obvious display of wealth that would establish a perceived, if unspoken, barrier between students of different economic means."
The student who started Dormaid calls that a "very uneconomic and narrow view." The call for a boycott stirred up reactions all over the Internet, with one blogger saying, "Yes, the collective good must always outweigh the individual's right ... to spend their own money however they wish."
