TEACHER LEAVE THEM KIDS ALONE: I found this course syllabus randomly, while looking for something else. Yeah, I know, there’s tons of stuff like this out there, and it’s not like this class is being taught at Brown–but what’s up here? Why would anyone teach a course on rhetoric–the art of persuasion–that gives credence only to one massively slanted side in every issue? How does that actually teach students to persuade?

OK, so I hope that was my last predictable right-wing grunt for the day. Yargh.
