My friend, Rusty Reno, published a piece yesterday in The Wall Street Journal that is worth your time, if you are interested in higher education and present trends in the academy.  Entitled “Why I Stopped Hiring Ivy League Graduates,” it begins: I’m not inclined to hire a graduate from one of America’s elite universities.

Unimaginatively titled, “Lemon v. Kurtzman at 50,” here’s how the essay begins: 2021 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Supreme Court case, Lemon v. Kurtzman. Its majority opinion, authored by Chief Justice Warren Burger, is well-known for giving us what would come… Read more

On May 24, 2021, Bob Dylan turns 80. In honor of this occasion, I have put together a list of what I believe are the 80 greatest songs that Dylan has composed and performed over his nearly 60-year career.
