PUTTING SOME NAMES ON THOSE FACE CARDS. The National Association of Scholars Forum has supplied two administrators who deserve a place in the card deck of notorious administrators.

Brooklyn College's Provost Roberta Matthews, who has made "plays well with others" tenurable, and who has politicized the senior thesis (now renamed "capstone," I suppose if we can accept "light rail vehicle" in place of interurban, anything goes) has made a case for Queen of Hearts. (Any allusions you wish to infer to Lewis Carroll are probably correct.)

President Timothy Sullivan of the College of William and Mary, who could not believe that a serious person would favor an affirmative-action bake sale, has made a case for nine of clubs.

(Why nine of clubs?) Because I'm the Superintendent.
