Typical liberal hogwash, will. My husband and I are both conservatives. He holds a Ph.D. in computer science and I am in the last stages of finishing my PsyD in clinical psychology. He teaches. I plan to provide therapy. Now exactly how is it that you expect us to be your servant class? Given the sophomoric logic in your post, I would suspect that it would be more appropriate for you to be our plumber rather than the other way around.

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...
