Academic Insanity

The Young Americas Foundation has released its annual “Dirty Dozen” report, a listing of the top 12 examples of “bizarre and troubling instances of leftist activism supplanting traditional scholarship” on American campuses. Among them is a class entitled “The Unbearable Whiteness of Barbie: Race and Popular Culture in the United States,” a course in “Stupidity” which compares the American presidency to Beavis and Butthead, and several “gay studies” classes.

While on the topic of academia, Monique Stuart examines how Sex and the City is influencing college journalists (expect a class on this soon).

Yes, it seems modern academia is open to everything. Well, not quite.
