To the Point

There comes a time in every epoch when pragmatism simply evolves into extreme acquiescence and surrender to the forces of apathy and do-nothingness, a guarantor of the status quo in all of its easy, democratic criminality--its fortress of greed. You could line up all the pols in the U.S. in a straight row and examine them head to toe and not find a single man or woman capable of admitting, never mind ending, the corruption of their vocation--Buddy Dooley

Truants

I can't believe what I just read.

Stanford students to skip classes in preparation for the big game with Oregon Thursday night?

Up in Pullman last Thursday, WSU canceled classes for the day.  But that is WSU, and evidently the parking situation on campus played into the decision.

Can't let those tailgate parties flounder now, can we?

Stanford isn't canceling classes, at least not officially, but this is starting to look like a trend for Thursday night football.

I hope that missed lecture doesn't come at too big a cost for some.
