he astute social critic John Leo makes some trenchant comments on political correctness at Marquette, ostensibly a Catholic school but in reality a university that should take credit only for its basketball team. But lest I single out one institute of higher education, be assured that this is commonplace everywhere.
The truly sad thing about this is that universities are supposed to be places where young people go to learn how to think, debate, discover ideas. Instead, they're just diploma factories that serve the secondary function of indoctrinating, as Rush Limbaugh put it, "young skulls full of mush." And we wonder why this nation lacks the will to do so much. I've got a quote appearing on Thursday that's apropos for this kind of thinking. (Or lack thereof.)
