I Choose Nostalgia

I googled: I choose Nostalgia, not some hackneyed inspirational word.

I know I am late to this party, but the other day I spotted Shepard Fairey's Obama Hope poster. Like most pieces of art that experience a meteoric rise, Fairey's poster has been relegated the coffers of pop-culture.

Bad Educations by Ben Wildavsky

The Wilson Quarterly: Book Reviews: Bad Educations by Ben Wildavsky

Another one of these books scrutinizing American higher education?

Yes, and this is fine. Why? Because unlike the cottage-industry of publishing books on how God does not exist or how stupid the people who believe in God are (this is the gist for a lot of these books), at least by scrutinizing higher education we can maybe, just maybe, move into a problem-solving stage in our culture regarding all things education.

One can dream, right?
