People out on the streets, they don’t know who I am
I watch blogs from my room, they are just passing by
I’m not just anyone, said I’m not just anyone…
Glenn Kinen: Lots of Israel/Palestine/Jew-hating in the Arab world stuff.
For some reason, Emily Stimpson won’t let you link to individual posts. So to read her good points on priestly celibacy, you’ll have to scroll down to her April 3 posts.
The Yale Daily News: Every year or so, the YDN runs a column bewailing the lack of intellectual discussion at Yale. This is the best one I’ve read so far. Merriman identifies many of the reasons for intellectual apathy: relativism, multiculturalism/empathy-politics, and the whole “gentleman’s C” mentality that ignores differences in order to get along rather than risking sharp disagreement. I had a completely different experience–but I got lucky one night, when a friend told me that some right-wing freaks were hosting a debate and serving free drinks. I feel sorry for people who never found something like that.
