    I really like this idea from Kurt Schlichter: “student loans need to come from the school and to be dischargeable in bankruptcy” Kurt Schlichter just wrote this excellent column, with a whole bunch of ways to improves colleges.Of Schlichter’s many excellent ideas, this one is my favorite. He wrote:Third, student loans need to come from the school and to be dischargeable in bankruptcy. A school is going to be a lot less eager to say, “Sure, go ahead and major in Norwegian Feminist Dance Theory” if they are on the hook when their ardent young scholar can’t get a gig...

    Illinois Review ^ | July 8, 2020 A.D. | John F Di Leo
    In the fall of 1951, Galaxy Science Fiction serialized one of Robert A. Heinlein’s tales, which was eventually published as The Puppet Masters. The story concerned an invasion of earth by small, flat, incredibly-fast-breeding aliens that could attach themselves to a human’s back and take over his mind completely. Though humanity eventually eradicates the threat, the book closes with the decision that life will never be the same. Due to the risk that these creatures might return, mankind must change the way it lives. We must forever change the way we dress and greet each other; clothing must expose the...
  • PRINCETON FACULTY LETTER DEMANDS END TO ACADEMIC FREEDOM

    On July 4, a group of more than 400 Princeton faculty members and (from the look of it) hangers-on sent a letter the college’s president and other leaders on the subject of “anti-black racism.” After a few perfunctory and unsupported allegations about this phenomenon, the authors proceed to the business at hand. They present several dozen “demands.” Each demand seems more outlandish than the last until, finally, we get to the apogee: Constitute a committee composed entirely of faculty that would oversee the investigation and discipline of racist behaviors, incidents, research, and publication on the part of faculty, following a...

    Cancel culture at its worst: A Boeing executive just quit his job because an employee complained that 33 years ago, he had written that he was against women in combat Boeing communications chief Niel Golightly just quit his job because an employee complained that 33 years ago, he had written that he was against women in combat.According to this article from Reuters, in a 1987 article, Golightly had written:“At issue is not whether women can fire M-60s, dogfight MiGs, or drive tanks. Introducing women into combat would destroy the exclusively male intangibles of war fighting and the feminine images of what...
  • Dr. Vladimir Zelenko’s claimed triple combination treatment for COVID-19: Have conservatives fallen for a bogus conspiracy theory? Or, have liberals ignored a real world, successful treatment for COVID-19?

    Dr. Vladimir Zelenko’s claimed treatment for COVID-19 with a triple combination of hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and azithromycin: Have conservatives fallen for a bogus conspiracy theory? Or, have liberals ignored a real world, successful treatment for COVID-19? At least since March, and perhaps even earlier, Dr. Vladimir Zelenko from New York has been claiming to have successfully treated COVID-19 patients with a triple combination of hydroxychloroquine, zinc, and azithromycin.In March, Snopes rated Dr.Zelenko’s claim as “unproven.”On May 8, medrxiv.org reported:Hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin plus zinc vs hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin alone: outcomes in hospitalized COVID-19 patients In univariate analyses, zinc sulfate increased the frequency of...

    A group of black racist thugs calling itself NFAC (Not F--ing Around Coalition) gathered in Stone Mountain Park, Georgia (outside Atlanta), dressed in all-black paramilitary gear, on July 4th, Independence Day, to protest a Confederate monument, tweak the KKK, intimidate white Americans, and attempt to start a race war. Really. You won't believe what you see!

    Lest we forget that the left considers the American founding our original sin, a recent string of articles, lawsuits, and so-called “activism” is taking aim at America’s founding fathers. They were too white, too male, not woke enough, some owned slaves. And anyway, the Constitution is silent on gender fluidity. On June 1, James Madison Memorial High School senior Mya Berry launched a petition to shorten the name of their school -- erasing Madison’s name from it entirely. Apparently, the school’s name made Berry feel “more than unsafe.” The proposed name-change would, according to Berry, comprise a remedy for several...

    Observations on classical Newtonian mechanics via the transfer of momentum from vehicular traffic to homo sapiens As the heavier mass collides with the lighter masses, momentum is transferred from the heavier mass to each of the lighter masses. As each of the lighter masses becomes airborne, its path follows a perfect parabola, notwithstanding the minimal effects of air resistance.In other words, this is why STEM majors never stand on the road in front of oncoming traffic.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jtXAP06qzA

She tries very hard not to take sides. Good for her. She’d make a great reporter.I’m not a reporter. My blog is not a news website. It’s an opinion website....

    A July 2 article began as follows: “A 25-year-old Arlington Heights man is accused of aggravated kidnapping and sexual abuse, among other charges, according to the Arlington Heights Police Department.” In journalism, the leading paragraph is known as the “lede” - with its own distinctive spelling, perhaps to signify how important it is to the process of newswriting. The rule is that it summarizes the most important elements of the article, because, as writers hate to admit but know all too well, not all readers will read the whole thing. The Pyramid Style In journalism class, we are taught the...

    Even though political speeches are not my thing, I watched Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore last night (you can find a video and transcript at American Digest). It was a well-crafted story of America’s past and a pledge about America’s future. As I watched and listened, I felt split. A small part of me – a part that represents the child I was in the 50s and early 60s, growing up and being educated in an America which still taught its children patriotism and a heroic vision of American exceptionalism, and where both parties agreed on that history and even...

And part of that pleasure is being complimented on my unique ability to pick a quality item from a menu.
