Good Grief, Has Everyone Gone Mad?

Paul’s two posts on the tender mercies our colleges are showing to traumatized students being excused from exams sent me back to the wisdom of my mentor M. Stanton Evans, who liked to remind young people:

“My generation had it much rougher than yours. Our malls weren’t covered. We didn’t have remotes so we had to get up and change the channel and we had to go through the whole Goldwater defeat without grief counselors.”

Stan would also offer this advice to the young:

“When you’re young and inexperienced, you tend to make a lot of mistakes.  That’s why you should be conservative when you’re young.  And then as you get older, you should become . . . more conservative.”

Meanwhile, this visual really can’t wait until Saturday (in fact it should have been posted yesterday):
