Thoughts for Opening a Serious DACA Discussion


Now that the Democrats, and their weakened Resistance during flu season, have caved and agreed to stop their much-ballyhooed Schumer Shutdown of the Federal Government, Republicans can look forward to continuing their assignment to lead America.

On the available evidence, it’s tempting to conclude that academe can’t get any goofier. Can’t sink any lower. But don’t ever say it. “Higher” education’s search for the bottom is apparently endless.
