Solomon Amendment Upheld

I remember attending a session at the AALS a few years ago in which the Solomon Amendment was being discussed (trashed actually--no balance on that panel). And I will never forget what one fervent young professor said. She said "well maybe we have to let the military interview on campus, but we don't have to give them coffee and doughnuts."
I wish I had said what I was thinking: Why not give them the coffee, but spit in it before you give it to them."
I haven't read the decision yet, but I am liking what I read about it.
Cheers, Rick Duncan
