Convo Update: Half Done.
Criticism of Policy Asymmetry

We have now completed five of this week's graduation ceremonies at UWO; five more to go.

At this morning's ceremony, the graduates were nearly all from the Administrative and Commercial Studies programme (a general undergraduate business programme offered by our Faculty of Social Sciences because our bizskool wouldn't offer one).
Nearly all, but not quite.
There were about 15 or 20 graduating students whose faculty is having its ceremony tomorrow morning, when Henry Morgentaler is receiving an honourary degree, but these students were given the option to graduate a day early if they didn't wish to graduate in the Morgentaler ceremony.

I'll bet people who favour the use of market solutions were not offered the option of changing ceremonies to avoid listening to the drivel from elitist interventionists who come through so damned often.

Strikes me as downright unfair.
