Today Grags noted that he was quoted twice in today's Daily Texan.

University to host January diversity symposium

Lino Graglia, a law professor at the University who opposes the use of race in admissions procedures, said he would attend the symposium if Faulkner invited him.

"For it to be an education exercise and not a propaganda exercise, you are going to have to have equally effective opponents from those sections," Graglia said. "It's necessary to have critics, and I doubt very much that that's what Larry Faulkner's going to want. College presidents rarely want discussions about this."

Grags also noted this comment by Bob Inman:

Bob Inman, a professor at the LBJ School of Public Affairs and a retired Navy Admiral, said military leaders would be a benefit to the symposium because of their experience during the 1948 desegregation of the military.

"You've got to have people lead who look like those being led," Inman said. "You can't expect to have people follow if they don't see similarities in the people they are following. Among the leaders, you need a good strong mix of [people]."

He "wondered" whether this meant race, or whether it was talking about women, fat people, and short people. How similar do they have to look? Shouldn't human be similar enough?

Justice Department to review final roadmap

UT Law School Professor Lino Graglia, who worked as an attorney for the Department of Justice from 1952 to 1966, applauds Ashcroft for his commitment to principle and believes he will be fair.

"I have no reason to think that Ashcroft will not be impartial as much as I have reason to think any other attorney general will be impartial," Graglia said.

Grags said it was funny that he is the only professor they can find for a differing (non-liberal) viewpoint on any issue.
