She was only at The Citadel for a couple of days, yet she is a hero for women's rights? I think she kinda does a disservice to the women graduates of The Citadel and VMI by getting this recognition. Why don't they talk to one of the women who graduated and made it through the whole thing? Also, with the focus on the male cadets celebrating after Ms. Faulkner left, it seems like there is a hint of anti-Citadel bias in the piece. I recognize that the actions of those cadets in 1995 (my Rat year at VMI) are hardly admirable; but, it's 10 years later and the school has come a long way in reaching some level of gender equity. How about giving some of the credit to The Citadel for that instead of a woman who was there for 4 days in August 1995? And, incidentally, I've started reading Pat Conroy's "South of Broad." Vintage Conroy; full of lyrical descriptions and sometimes-depressing overtones. He's a master of the language, though, no question.
