You might remember that I interviewed the lovely pro-life Indiana television host Patty Hunter last year. This weekend she is doing a walk-a-thon to raise money for a crisis pregnancy center that offers free and confidential services for the health of women and babies: My
Senator, the primitive and often, even, atavistic aspects of the battlefield test the physical strength, the mental agility of everyone, but most of what it tests is the courage and the spiritual side of the troops we put in harm’s way. And oftentimes it’s only unit cohesion, leadership, and the belief in themselves and their comrades that allows them to go through what they have to go through and come home as better men and women, and not as broken. And so, The 'warrior ethos' is not a luxury, it is essential, when you have a military.

So someone sucker punches someone else, and then rightfully arrested. That's supposed to be Trump's fault? A criminal law primer, folks: Words do not justify violence.

There’s a saying common in education circles: Don’t teach students what to think; teach them how to think. The idea goes back at least as far as Socrates. Today, what we call the Socratic method is a way of teaching that fosters critical thinking, in part by encouraging students to question their own unexamined beliefs, as well as the received wisdom of those around them. Such questioning sometimes leads to discomfort, and even to anger, on the way to understanding. But vindictive protectiveness teaches students to think in a very different way. It prepares them poorly for professional life, which often demands intellectual engagement with people and ideas one might find uncongenial or wrong. The harm may be more immediate, too. A campus culture devoted to policing speech and punishing speakers is likely to engender patterns of thought that are surprisingly similar to those long identified by cognitive behavioral therapists as causes of depression and anxiety. The new protectiveness may be teaching students to think pathologically.
