The Case Against College Entitlements...No Comment

Ashley Thorne

We have a new category of postings for the NAS website: items we quote without comment from articles, books, websites, and other sources. Some of the items that will appear here strike us as so perfect of their kind that our comment would be superfluous.  Perfection, of course, comes in many varieties. We will report perfect inanity, perfect inflation of triviality to academic bombast, perfect pretension in the pursuit of shabby ends, and perfect sophistry, as well as the occasional perfect moments of lucidity and good argument. 

We won’t be commenting on these items (at least in words), but our readers may have something to add.

Today's No Comment item is from reason.tv via Instapundit, a video on government proposals for higher education:
