Holiday reading

Mark Steyn talks about a lot of good people; Judy Garland gets a brief and surprising mention, and so does RI. Speaking of that state, we saw quite a few WWI veterans the first time we attended the Bristol 7/4 parade. Having mentioned good, we’ll turn now to VDH and evil: “these deep-state and media elites are narcissistically delusional. So inured are they to deference that they really believed they should have the power, indeed the right, to subvert democracy.” We’ll conclude with a feel-good piece about sumo wrestling; we forgot that Thomas Lifson taught at Harvard. Given how nutty that place is today, they’d kick him out of Winthrop House too.

Fun update: proving the theory of relativity.

    I’m not sure the politics of the left predominate at colleges and universities — well, certainly not to the extent that’s often thought, at any rate. In my experience, most faculty just want to be left alone to teach and read and write, and most students just want to be left alone to learn. But an activist minority has deliberately put the fear of God into them, threatening to out them as racist, sexist, homophobic, etc., unless they ‘honor’ leftist silliness. This culture of shame is huge in higher education, and I’m convinced it explains the unfortunate silence of the majority.
