KC Johnson, law profs, and intellectual diversity

Two stories in the last few days have popped up about intellectual diversity in higher ed. One is KC Johnson's story in Inside Higher Ed and the other is a story in the New York Times describing a study of law professors' political contributions.

It's the first week of classes and I'm still far behind where I need to be right now—I have weeks of work on Education Policy Analysis Archives waiting for me, let alone the end of an edited book manuscript, classes, and a union membership drive—so I'm going to let these pass without extensive comment, at least for now. See Ralph Luker's compilation of responses to the Johnson column.
