Radley Balko points to an article about an editorial in the Harvard Crimson calling for a boycott against a sophomore's cleaning service, Dormaid.

I can't find the full editorial online. In the excerpt Radley pulls, the writer says:
"By creating yet another differential between the haves and have-nots on campus, Dormaid threatens our student unity," the Crimson said in an editorial.
Seems to me the real differential in the situation is between the sorry young adults who have not the gumption to clean their own damn rooms (a tender point with me), and those who have the entrepreneurial wit to do something about it.

Or maybe that's the point. The household help was so much more discreet.

UPDATE: Here is the text of the editorial. And, yes, the point is that household help was just that.

It's less annoying than I thought.

UPDATE II: I will say that in any case it would be a public service if adolescent boys' rooms were regularly cleaned. The adolescent boys I have known, even the most meticulously groomed and tidy, leave a stink in their rooms. Simple fact.
