In Response to: In Brief

PAW reported (Notebook, March 17) that Van Jones had resigned [his White House position]. He resigned under pressure of the Congress for radical ideas on the environment. President Obama was pushed into agreement.

Now that he needs an audience, Princeton gives him the credibility of our University. What is the point? Do we take on someone who has failed his country so that one can radicalize part of our student body? He titles his course “Green Economics for the Disadvantaged.” We have given him the platform for his controversial ideas and not for an education!
