Battlground: Boston

Today's Globe has a series of sketches by Sage Stossel and Con Chapman on page D3 making war-time metaphors about university expansion in Boston. They describe Harvard allying with Northeastern to eliminate BU, BC expanding to make up for its Beanpot hockey futility, and MIT offering asylum to refugees from Kenmore Square.
Because they are professional satirists, do they get a free pass when they compare Harvard's policies with those of early 20th century Germany? Personally, I prefer a comparison with Jefferson's Louisiana Purchase.

    No free pass for them -- it was a dumb cartoon that contributed nothing to the discussion.
