More on That College Issue

Roderick Long’s link to the surprisingly favorable New York Times Magazine article about Auburn's philosophy department spurred me to leaf through the printed version of the “College Issue.” It’s decidedly a mixed bag, with the New York Times unable to avoid politicking. We learn about what a good teacher Barack Obama was and how the Naval Academy today is nothing like what it was in the bad old days when John McCain was there.

Worth reading: a short, snippety interview with Charles Murray (don’t worry, he holds his own) and a poignant endpaper on the love-hate experience of a teacher and his teaching.
