- Prof. Victor Davis Hansom has an article for National Review about our "medieval" universities. My complaint is that the universities aren't medieval enough.
- On a related subject, and one even more dear to my heart, is this critique of any of the universities which actually do manage to be otherwise good universities: they tend to be bad at the STEM majors. There is also a comment on said article which helps to explain a little about why that is. There's a lot more to be said about this.
- Apparently, one can't be a good new atheist if one enjoys fairytales or fantasies. I guess that's not so shocking.
- Tolerance often leads to hatred, which is a good cautionary tale which I hope doesn't play out.
- Obamacare is simply evil, which makes sense given that it was passed under false pretenses.
- I am expecting some combination of ammo control and mandatory registration of 3D printers at some point in the near future.
- Going back to tolerance, I've long held that to be disgusted by something does not mean that we hate people who engage in it. I don't hate cigarette-smokers, nor people who love to eat food which I find to be, er, unpalatable, But for some reason, being disgusted by behaviors once universally called "deviant" makes one a bigot, and therefore fair game as a target for public displays of two-minute hate and private malice.
- Last but not least, a reflection on D-Day (sort-of) which ties into some of these other links.
That's it for now.
