I had a really long post mostly written, but in an attempt to get a symbol to show up in the text, something strange happened and the browser left the posting page without saving my work. I just don't have it in me to re-constitute that post, at least not right now.
This is one of those days, I guess, when the academic load is going to supercede the blog. It'll happen from time to time. Sorry. Until I manage to post again, here's more proof that the rising generation of Americans is ripe for fascism:
One in three U.S. high school students say the press ought to be more restricted, and even more say the government should approve newspaper stories before readers see them, according to a survey being released today.
The survey of 112,003 students finds that 36% believe newspapers should get "government approval" of stories before publishing; 51% say they should be able to publish freely; 13% have no opinion.
Asked whether the press enjoys "too much freedom," not enough or about the right amount, 32% say "too much," and 37% say it has the right amount. Ten percent say it has too little.
PS to Mat: I've had that Leonard Nimoy song about Bilbo Baggins stuck in my head for days you evil fucker.
