My young, smart, conservative friend Harry graduated from high school in June, and is heading off to college.
As it happens, he’s going off to my old college, and sent me an email over the weekend asking for advice:
The other day a friend posted on my Facebook a link for the Fall 2010 course catalog, which was a startling reminder that I’m growing up and about to head off to college. In regards to my course load next year, there is certainly not a shortage of fantastic options. I was curious, though, if you knew of/ knew any professor in particular that you’d think I’d like or should look into (re: a purveyor of truth and wisdom in a secular sea of pinko lefties).
I told him the truth: they’re all pinko lefties. But that doesn’t mean you can’t learn a lot anyway, even from lefties. Maybe especially from lefties. And I told him I’d ask the great collective beehive brain of Ricochet if they had any general advice for a young, center/right guy about to start college. Here was his response:
I’d love to see what kind of responses that would get. My only qualm would be the word “center” in my overall description. Chalk it up to teenage idealism, but I’ve drifted from there long ago.
Harry’s one of us. So, what do you think? Any advice?
