What classes do you teach?
My staple course every fall
is Law and Philosophy. We talk
about equality under the law,
especially in the U.S. Constitu-
tion. I've been teaching it since
the 1990s. The course fulfills the
race and ethnicity requirement,
so I do want to get students
thinking about the meanings of
race and the realities of racial
inequality in the United States
and how the law can be used
as an 'instrument to promote
equality.
How did you come to work
in philosophy at the Univer-
sity?
I came here in 1987 right
after earning my Ph.D. at Har-
vard where I studied with John

Rawls - the very famous John
Rawls. Michigan made me an
offer, and it was the best offer I
had, so I came here.
You're working on a his-
tory of egalitarianism. How's
that going?
The dominant view is known
as luck egalitarianism, which
says that what's unjust is any-
one being worse off than anyone
else on the basis of pure luck. My
view is that egalitarianism real-
ly isn't about luck or un-luck, it's
fundamentally about eliminat-
ing oppression. Its main focus
should be on unequal social
relations between people.
What's your teaching phi-
losophy?
My main philosophy is get-

ting students thinking for them-
selves. That's really the heart of
higher education. It's not just
receiving a lot of information
from the instructor but learning
how to do stuff with it on your
own.
What's next for you?
I am now the director of the
soon-to-be-launched Philoso-
phy, Politics and Economics
concentration. Students will
take courses from all three
units. I hope students will keep
their ears pricked for more
information. The first course
offering under the designation
PPE will be taught by me next
winter.

Members of the Mexican Navy stand guard over seized telecommunications equipment, allegedly built by the Zetas
drug cartel, during a media presentation in Veracruz, Mexico, on Thursday Sept. 8, 201.
Leading Mexican gangs
make presence known

Zetas drug cartel
recently accused of
crimes, including
attacking civilians
VERACRUZ, Mexico (AP) -
A gang known to be aligned with
Mexico's most-wanted drug lord
appears to be making a violent
challenge to the dominant Zetas
Cartel in the Gulf state of Vera-
cruz, dumping 35 bodies on a
busy avenue in front of horri-
fied motorists near where the
nation's top prosecutors were
about to start a convention.
The cartel known as the New
Generation unloaded the bound,
seminude, tortured bodies dur-
ing rush hour Tuesday as part
of a several-month campaign to
take the strategic port of Vera-
cruz now controlled by the Zetas
drug gang, an official in the
Mexican armed forces told The.
Associated Press on yesterday.
All 35 victims, who included
12 women and two minors, were
linked to the Zetas cartel, said
the official, who couldn't be
quoted by name for security rea-
sons.
It was the first official
acknowledgment of who may
have carried out the attack after
a banner left at the scene threat-
ened the Zetas and bore the ini-
tials "G.N."

A U.S. law enforcement offi-
cial said the New Generation is
believed to be linked to Joaquin
"El Chapo" Guzman, widely con-
sidered the world's wealthiest
drug trafficker.
But the U.S. official, who also
could not be quoted by name for
security reasons, said it would be
surprising to see heavy involve-
ment in Veracruz by Guzman or
his Sinaloa cartel, which is based
in the Pacific coast state of the
same name on the other side of
Mexico.
"We don't have anything that
corroborates or disputes" that
the body dumping was linked to
Guzman, the U.S. official said,
adding that other sources say
the Gulf Cartel could have been
responsible. "Sometimes these
criminal groups blame the other
guys."
Drug trafficking in Veracruz
was long controlled by the Gulf
Cartel. But the business has been
taken over by the Zetas, who had
acted as enforcers for the Gulf
Cartel before breaking away in
early 2010 and waging a bloody
war with their former allies
across northeastern Mexico.
The Zetas presence in Vera-
cruz has grown since the gov-
ernment launched a crackdown
late last year in their main base
of Tamaulipas, a border state to
the north. But the gang has also
been hit hard in Veracruz by
Mexican army and navy opera-

tions, leaving them weakened
and vulnerable to challenges
from rival gangs, the Mexican 1
military official said.
This Gulf coast city is Mexi-
co's busiest port for commercial
goods.
The official said there is no
way to inspect all the contain-
ers coming in. He said many of 0
the drug smuggled in come from
Central American, an area where
the Zetas have been expanding.
The state is also a main transit
route for cocaine and migrants
coming from the Guatemalan
border. The Zetas have con-
trolled the corridor, the Mexican
official said.
A banner left with the bodies
Tuesday criticized the Zetas for
killing innocents and charging
extortion, warning: "No more."
The Mexican officical said the
New Generation gang has been
carrying out what it calls "sur-
gical" attacks that target Zetas
only and no civilians.
Security expert Raul Benitez
agreed that the attack could be
the work of a gang aligned with
Guzman, who is forming alli-
ances to attack the Zetas in other
parts of Mexico. He said Guz-
man is seeking both to control
territory and to punish the Zetas
for attacking civilians, some-
thing that is shunned by most
drug traffickers and that has
ramped up government heat on
all cartels.
