Someone to steer clear of

During my Princeton visit I was happy not to see the notorious Peter Singer, who masquerades as an academic ethical philosopher. I might, however, have liked to meet with Princeton Students Against Infanticide. Ironically Prof. George, whom I did meet, reports that he and Singer are actually in agreement on a number of issues. Both believe that, if one countenances abortion, there is no logical reason to object to infanticide. Of course, the two differ on whether these are ethically permissible practices, with George objecting and Singer approving.
