Pretty Funny

I think this is exactly what happens at Northland College, our relatively non-environmental local instutution of higher indoctrination. Full disclosure: Mrs. coldH2O sits on a committee of Northland College. Anyway, click on the link & read all of Berube's post.

"The process all starts with the captivity, really. As you know, Sean, in America, students are assigned to their universities by the Federal Education and Re-education Committee. Once they arrive on campus, they are subjected to a rigorous system of mandatory coursework. We like to call it “basic training,” and let me tell you, the foreign language requirements are especially punitive. Now, the FERC records tell of a student who tried, in 1988, to “choose” an “elective” course at a Big Ten university. That student was sentenced to twenty years in the Nevada silver mines, where she works today. And I don’t think I have to tell you what happens to undergraduates who violate curfew!"
