University of Chicago letter…

These days it’s rare to find a college which refuses to treat its students as delicate little snowflakes,  liable to melt at the slightest bit of upset.   I would never have guessed that the University of Chicago,  despite its long history of freedom of expression,  surrounded as it is by the massively corrupt Chicago political machine and its far-reaching tentacles,  would be the one to  warn freshmen  that they were to be educated,  not protected from the real world.

Jay Nordlinger has a podcast with Charles Lipson,  a professor of political science at this private university,  and a fine writer,  here.

UPDATE:  Could the University of Chicago done an even better job?   Ken White  thinks so.
