I don't think this is reason enough to be (or rather for RGB to have been) so rude. For one thing, not everyone here has been to a "school of that caliber" or even to the northeast before, so it's not fair to be annoyed with people for asking questions about it. Also, I am sure there are plenty of differences between being in, say, Palo Alto and being in a largely black city like New Haven or between being in a (relatively) proportionately large black community at Yale and being in a large black community in absolute terms at Harvard. Some of the people here have been generous about sharing their impressions of life at Harvard, and I think their comments have shown that it's not just like any other place (I am thinking particularly of Nat's discussion of the Cambridge/Boston black communities).
So I have to have a valid reason to feel what I feel? I'm pretty sure I can be annoyed by whatever annoys me.
lol, I can't tell if you and P really don't like each other or if it is jokes. Did I miss something?

Did I miss something?I like RBG; I just don't think the fact that he is sometimes very funny is much of an excuse to be so rude to the n00bs here. I'm just teasing about the b-word business, though (but I do think he's wrong).
Yes it is.
