Heh. I went to the "10 Most Politically Active..." link and got contextual ads for Strayer University, University of Phoenix, and DeVry. I'm in DC, so apparently their ad servers can do geolocation but aren't intelligent enough to figure out I'm online from Georgetown's network.

What no Berkley? They're radical, just not active?

I've heard that Berkley was radicalized when Sen. Joe McCarthy just pulled it out of nowhere, as an example of a dangerous hotbed of communism, during a televised hearing. The next day all the radicals started hitch-hiking out there, creating a self-fulfilling characterization.
