At St. Nate's Blog, Brother Nate hosts the First Skeptics' Circle.
Kathy Lynn Gray reports for the Columbus Dispatch on the introduction of David Horowitz's"Academic Bill of Rights" in the Ohio state legislature.
Don't tell our buddies over at Liberty & Power, but Scott McLemee has his own perspective on Ayn Rand for her centennial. Incidentally, his second column about Phyllis and Julius Jacobson for Inside Higher Ed is up. Its reference to the intellectual competition at New York cafeterias in the 1930s reminded me of a terrific piece that ran in the New York Review of Books, oh, about 1975. It described the intellectual cafeteria at CCNY in the 1930s, when the Lovestonites held forth at one table, the Socialists at another, and the Leninists at a third. The debates triangulated among the tables. Somehow, Young Republican cookie sales and Young Democrats' sensitivity training don't seem like an adequate substitute.
While you're over at Inside Higher Ed, KC Johnson has a piece there on"The Stealth Curriculum" and IHE's"Around the Web" must be doing a good job because it currently features posts by Tim Burke, Miriam Burstein, Erin O'Connor, and Jonathan Reynolds.
