Keep Stanford Small
by The Stanford Review
Nov 09, 2007
“On October 17, 2007, the Stanford Report revealed that President Hennessy was appointing a task force to “explore the idea of increasing the size of the freshman class—and, as a consequence, the overall undergraduate population of the university.” Hennessy’s proposal was supported by Dean of Admissions Richard Shaw, who told the Stanford Daily: “If you have the capacity and the will to provide the education to extremely qualified students from different socioeconomic backgrounds, then why wouldn’t you try to give more people access to a world class education?””

The Armchair General’s Surrender
by The Stanford Review
May 11, 2007
“On April 20, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) stated, “I believe myself that the secretary of state, secretary of defense and -- you have to make your own decisions as to what the president knows -- [know] this war is lost and the surge is not accomplishing anything as indicated by the extreme violence in Iraq yesterday.” The senator’s statements were hardly surprising, coming after extensive Congressional maneuverings to cripple or at least denigrate the administration’s strategy for Iraq. Still, Reid’s candid admission of defeat (not his defeat, mind you) should shock a level-headed observer of the ongoing conflict in Iraq. The shortsighted statement betrays a refusal to acknowledge moderately encouraging signs in the field.”
