Still Not Funny

A painful but true bit of perspective to start your day, particularly if you have kids in college or anticipate having kids in college.  I blogged about this issue a few months back, but it seems to be getting only more true, and less funny.  If you think that sending your kid to college is the way to broaden their horizons and expose them to a diversity of ideas that will improve their thinking as well as their character, you should probably be watching the news and reconsidering this rationale.

There are bright spots here and there, signs that the efforts to destroy free speech and free thought in the quest for some illusory and dangerous “safety” will not be totally capitulated to.  But they are few.  Unless people are willing to stand up for their actual rights, rather than caving in to demands for fear of hurt feelings or economic damage, things are only going to get worse.
