« "Superbly Situated" [by Bob Hershon, May 28,1936 - March 20, 2021] | Main | For Memorial Day: Charles Laughton reads Walt Whitman, with music by Bernard Herrmann »

Very well put. Thank you.

Dear Solveig:

I admire your unequivocal defense of your husband as much as I admire Joshua's own stand.

You two are an erudite, noble, and brave couple.

You write, in closing: "The Ivory Tower is a house of cards. And for the first time in my life, I’m sorry to say, I’ll almost be glad to see it fall."

Indeed. "Higher education" must collapse wholesale. Nothing can remain of the rot and fraud. Its poison is lethal and pervasive. No civilization can survive the complete corruption of a core institution.

But will the university implode? I doubt it. Sometimes nihilism and evil, ever resilient, take on a life of their own.

I pray I'm wrong.

I completely agree wth Todd S. Hyatt.

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness

on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
