It’s not nice of me, but I cannot help expressing a little schadenfreude at the pass to which Harvard has brought itself over a law professor’s defense of Harvey Weinstein (“A house divided at Harvard,” Page A1, May 5). The old verities, like the value of a lawyer defending an unpopular client, are under attack. Intellectual and rational discourse is replaced by identity grievance, personal harassment, shaming, and, oh yes, litigation.
