Liberal Arts

window panesDown the street art. Windows tell stories. A colorful ventana of varied views. Open-minded homage to many philosophies on the left. A closed curtain on the alt-right. Political panes.

Kudos and congratulations to the University of Chicago. Sent acceptance letters with the caveat that incoming freshmen will benefit from a true liberal arts atmosphere. Freedom of expression encouraged. There will be no ‘trigger warnings’ nor ‘safe spaces’ for students here. All Commencement Speakers Welcome!

Safe Spaces

It’s that time of year again. Commencement disses. Free speech is dead on college campuses. Liberal arts have been replaced by narrow minds. Micro-aggressions prohibited. Safe places. Good luck finding happy spots out there in the real world. Oh. Right. You’ll be protected in your parents’ basements. Not thinking about much. Vacuous brains don’t hurt. Opposing points of view will never come through that flat screen.

Anywhere on the Island Green.
