Speaking at NYU's graduation, Laurence Tribe -- left wing Harvard Law professor (and, incidentally, an Obama supporter -- told the graduates to thank their parents for having conceived them.

It's a sad sign of the times when an admittedly brilliant academic -- long on the Dems' short list for the Supreme Court -- stoops to sex talk as part of a graduation address.  Whether it was a 65 year old's attempt to sound hip and "with it," or just a dazzling display of crassness and poor taste, it really does make one wish that we could re-establish a public consensus that there are occasions when references to sex are simply out of bounds.
