"The Write Stuff," by Reid Buckley

Thanks to my friend Martha Spotts for pointing me to this great article. It's so much fun when eloquent people rant and rave over things I like to rant and rave over. A taste:

Not once in their educational lives had they been taught to impose order on chaos, that being contrary to the central dogma of liberal-arts education in our country today. There is no such thing as choosing, as distinguishing between the false and the real, discriminating between good and bad. The cost of this heresy to our nation is beyond calculating: for two generations our businesses, professions, universities, and politics have been populated by moral illiterates who reject reason.
