Editorial here.  Frankly, I’ll vote for any candidate who will support taxing college endowments above a certain limited amounts.

I remember when a hostage crisis spawned a new TV show, Nightline.  Now it doesn’t even make the news, period.  Why?

Belarus

The country of Belarus has apparently seen the movie White Knights.   For those of you who haven’t seen it, Mikhail Baryshnikov plays a Russian dancer who defected and while flying to Tokyo, his plan is forced down in the Soviet Union.  It is an OK movie.

Apparently a leading Belarussian dissident was on a Ryanair flight flying over Belarus.  The government reported a bomb threat to the plane and sent a fight to escort it to land in Belarus.  Once on the ground there, the dissident was pulled from the flight and appears to have been imprisoned.

As you can imagine, this isn’t going over well with other countries.  Airlines are avoiding Belarus airspace and airlines are cancelling flights in and out of the country.  Some are pointing out that if they get away with doing this, other countries will do it too.
