Martin Benjamin ’57 Strikes Back

This Tuesday’s Argus brought to campus the vicious return of über-conservative favorite Martin Benjamin ’57. His semi-coherent latest Wespeak is “An Open Letter to Roth,” wherein he lashes out against Senator Edward Kennedy Hon ’84 and, at one point, likens President Roth to “a teeny-bopper who’d just been goosed by her first crush.” (Quote of the century?)

Compiled here is a collection of Benjamin’s fiery Wespeaks over the past decade. But for a glimpse at a more youthful, innocent Mr. Benjamin, I present to you his portrait in the 1957 yearbook, as discovered in Olin. Might I suggest it accompany his future Wespeaks, if only to put his ranting and raving into perspective?
