The terms of capitulation could hardly have been more perfect. From the NYT:

Michele Gross, Oberlin’s director of dining services, said in a statement on Monday that “in our efforts to provide a vibrant menu, we recently fell short in the execution of several dishes in a manner that was culturally insensitive.”

She added: “We have met with students to discuss their concerns and hope to continue this dialogue.”

“A vibrant menu”. For frack’s sake. The whole school is a Portlandia episode come to life.

Will the day ever come when a college administrator tells students, “No, you stupid twits. Grow up!”? Ever?
