The real UVa culture

Ed Driscoll compiles the comments on the unraveling Rolling Stone story.
And gives Jonah Goldberg a chance to discuss the real culture of UVa.
Most of the UVA students I’ve met — and I’ve met a lot — are the sorts of kids who worry a lot about their permanent records. That makes sense; UVA is a truly great school with an impressive academic culture. And so while I can certainly believe sexual assaults and rapes happen there — drunk and sober — I simply cannot believe that nine men sat around soberly and plotted a brutal gang rape that would land them all in jail for decades — never mind hinder their chances of working at Goldman Sachs!
Those who believe there's a rape culture don't understand that culture.
