Harvard University Hires "Fun Czar"

In 1643 Harvard University's raison d'etre was "to advance Learning and perpetuate it to Posterity; dreading to leave an illiterate Ministry to the Churches." The Harvard of today bears scant resemblance to its roots. Now the $64,000 question is: How much lower can Harvard University go?

Today the Boston Herald reports that Harvard has hired a former student into the newly created post of "Fun Czar", designed to help students learn how to "have fun". Apparently Czar Zac Corker (I'm not making this up, really) comes well qualified:

As an undergrad at Harvard, he put together a suds-soaked party that was busted by police, and helped create a Web site that encourages drinking and gives tips on how to tap a keg and unhook a bra.

Czar Corker's website hahvadpahties.com instructs students how to get $100 out of the University to sponsor parties.

Somewhere in the soggy Massachusetts earth, the Rev. John Harvard is spinning like a top.
