Tony Kushner to get that degree after all?

Tony Kushner's tantrum is apparently going to result in him getting his way. The Board of Trustees of the City University of New York, which had not planned to meet again until after graduation, is going to meet on Monday night to reconsider last week's vote rejecting Kushner's honorary degree (Hat Tip: Dan F). I have embedded the invitation to the Board of Trustees meeting below (it is apparently open to the public for those of you in the New York area who want to attend). I especially call your attention to the statement by Chairman of the Board of Trustees Benno Schmidt (the last page), which went out on Friday, which accompanied the notice regarding the meeting, which makes it clear that the meeting's goal is to reverse last week's decision.

By the way, if you go here, you will see that the person at whom we should be targeting our anger is Jeremy Travis, the President of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
