Let’s Help Academia Destroy Itself

May I suggest, in your case, an English grammar course? "[T]heir attracted to," should be "they're attracted to" [commonly] or "to which they're attracted" [properly]. So concentrating studies should include the basics -- English, math, science, foreign languages, history, geography. The rest of the "studies" can be covered by the time left over for free reading.

Conservatives should welcome the decline of academia as we know it. I, for one, will celebrate its death by engaging in the same activity that characterized my four years at what some call its pinnacle– drinking a lot of Coors Light.

There is still nostalgia among conservatives, especially older ones who have forgotten what college is really like, for the idea of higher education as a rigorous venue for intellectual growth, an environment of exciting and vibrant ideas shared by wise, caring educators dedicated to the pursuit of truth.

Today, it is nothing of the sort.

For the vast majority...
