Prof. Hermon --
sorry for the belated reply. I've been working to counter
GW Bush's distortions a lot lately. See www.13myths.org.
Are you and your colleagues aware of the recent grants for
"eugenics" related research given to the University of Delaware?
I was researching the activities of Bush's main lawyer Ted Olson
and the research led me right to the Univ. of Delaware. I noticed
that one of the groups funding Olson's efforts to stop affirmative
action, a foundation based in New York City, also gave $200,000
to the Univ. of Delaware!
The tax forms that document this are now online. See:
There is a professor at Ferris State who has helped unveil this
group. The foundation contributed to the book "The Bell Curve"
and apparently supports those academics (far and few in between as
they might be) whose research would suggest that people of
color are genetically inferior to white people.
Could you please let me know if people there are interested in
learning more about this? There are two networks of academics
experienced in opposing this sort of thing that I can put you in

p.s. there is a U of Delaware student [log in to unmask] on one
of our mailing lists. Do you know this student?
