Awe-inspiring Vacuity

I recently had occasion to reread the January 24-30 1996 San Francisco Bay Guardian feature story New College’s Brave New World by Nina Siegal. Besides being some of the best reporting I’ve ever read, it also sheds considerable light on the pathological liars that comprised the ruling cabal at the school for three decades. The textbook paranoia and ruthless condescension of the “spiritual community” embodied by Peter Gabel, Martin Hamilton, Milly Henry, Michael McAvoy, and Colleen O’Neal, is so revolting and transparent, it makes me wonder why the Western Association of Schools and Colleges let this abuse of New College faculty, staff and students go on for so long.
