by Skip March 25, 2017

This from the last of a post (“Why College Graduates Can’t Think”) sums up a lot: More to the point, that explains why employers keep complaining that college graduates can’t think.

Frankly, they’re ALL daft and all too concerned with making victim of themselves

by Skip March 31, 2016

I don’t write much about the loonyness that is going on in the Ivory Tower (Ground Zero for the stupidity that is known as Political Correctness) – it just gets too bizarre that these precious snowflakes that seemingly haven’t had to work a second in their lives and pay taxes are all up in arms […]

Is this the point at which the LGBT<XYZ> movement jumps the shark?  From The Corner (Mark Steyn): George Leef over at NRO’s PhiBetaCons had a teasing link to this exciting news earlier today: Harvard has appointed Vanidy “Van” Bailey as the College’s first permanent director of bisexual, gay, lesbian, transgender, and queer student life.
