7. Anyways, Roche III was a real hero to USA right because Hillsdale rejected affirmative action & thereby lost federal funding (but in fact got special tax breaks, as now)

8. Impossible to overstate how beloved Hillsdale is in USA right. It's their ideal college & constantly has right-wing luminaries as guests.
