In a decision with potentially large ramifications, New York Federal Judge LaShann DeArcy Hall won't dismiss a libel suit against "Shitty Media Men" creator Moira Donegan.

Today marks the official end of the League Symposium on Higher Education. I’d like to extend a big thank everyone who helped make this effort a success.
First, I’d like to commend the folks–both regulars and guest writers–who shared their work with us. The pieces were well-written, wide-ranging, and thought-provoking, providing plenty of ideas for discussion.
Thanks as well to everyone who commented. Lively and polite conversation not only enlivens this blog, but also helps draw out the nuances of the original pieces and refine our thinking about ideas.
And thanks finally to our readers. If you’re a regular, we appreciate your continued support. If you just dropped by for the symposium, we hope you found something you liked and will stick around and join the party.
