Bad liberal Writing- John Meacham, Boy- Editor of Newsweek

I love Sewanee, an Episcopal university tucked away on 13,000 rural acres.... It is a place where students and faculty wear academic gowns to class.... Modernity intrudes with a single full-time traffic light on campus, but for years that incursion was ameliorated by the sight of a professor of religion's cat taking a daily nap on the street directly beneath the light. (John Meacham, Newsweek, writing on the Liberal Arts)

Deep down you know it kills him he didn't go Harvard. Or even Brown. I mean going to college down south makes him practically a tea bagger.

Be careful losing yourself in tortured thoughts of modernity around the traffic light when you cross the campus or you might end up substituting your academic gown for a hospital one.
