With respect, this is one of Prof. Adams weaker efforts. I was expecting to be outraged...but this kind of thing has been mild since my own college days in the late 1970s. It is a valid argument to state the taxpayers shouldn't be paying for these kids of things, just on fiscal grounds alone. But the headline makes it sound like something unbelievably sordid is going on, and it sounds like just more of the same self-important sexual revolution preachery that was en vogue when these professors were undergrads. Stick to the real problems. This is just ho-hum.

I'd think these students can simply google and learn all that stuff if inclined to.

Where the heck did you attend college? Where I attended, thing of a sexual nature certainly occurred, but didn't need any taxpayer funds or professorial instruction.

Something "unbelievably sordid" - and evil is going on. The use of public funds for this sort of thing is just one aspect of how it is reprehensible. Your position suggests that you tolerate such activities. That means the secular progressive movement which fosters these kinds of things has desensitized you to them. That in turn enables them to take it to the next level. They have been masters of this over the years. It starts out seemingly innocent or minor in nature and eventually winds up with "The New Normal". It's a dirt road we really don't want to be on, but are at the moment; and many wonder how we got there. It is a real problem.

Exactly John! Adams retains his outrage and he's kept it for years. So must we. Thanks.

I beg to differ. We are in debt big time. This is timely. If you have lost your outrage and Adams retains his then you are the one with the problem. Wake up. Do you not have children? Or are you just clueless and indifferent?

Author’s Note: If you are concerned about this kind of spending in higher education, please contact Governor Pat McCrory at http://www.governor.state.nc.us/. His remarks about liberal arts education have been right on target. He gets it.

I think the time has come for a line item veto in higher education. The people of North Carolina are being bankrupted by higher education spending that is simply not academic in nature. The problem was once confined to UNC’s flagship campus in Chapel Hill. But now it has spread like a cancer throughout the entire UNC system.

For example, this week (February 4-8, 2013)...
