No, Towson University is not suggesting anyone try a new weight loss plan. The university's TowsonUNews Twitter account was hijacked late last week, leaving some 6,121 people wondering why Towson was suggesting via Twitter that they try this new weight-loss diet. Towson media specialist Gay Pinder sheepishly acknowledged Monday morning, that, yes, she clicked on one of those "people are saying nasty things about you, click here to find out what" links late last week. That's why the notices showed up on so many people's Twitter feeds.

In case no one has noticed it yet, two-thirds of Towson University's past and current student body is and remains white. The current and past regime's mantra of "inclusion" and "diversity" is nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to disenfranchise the whites. This includes the recent Title 9 female over male baseball mess that the current TU president botched. TU is fine with all new ideas, just as long as they are theirs. During 1970-72 as an elected Student Government Association senator, I stood behind the effort to form a Black Student Union.

Twelve years ago, I moved to Towson from New Haven upon my marriage to a lovely woman, Baltimore born and bred. I happily settled into my wife's condo right in the center of town. The apartment on the 23rd floor faces south and west and has terrific views. On a clear night, I can see all the way to lit-up Camden Yards. I can watch an Orioles game on TV, and get up and look out at the lights of the stadium. Living in the center of Towson has great advantages. Everything you need is only a short walk away: the bank, the post office, the library, the dry cleaners, the copy shop, even Trader Joe's.
