Quote of the day

BRUCE FLEMING:
The incident brings to light an unpleasant truth: the Naval Academy, where I have been a professor for 23 years, has lost its way. The same is true of the other service academies. They are a net loss to the taxpayers who finance them, as well as a huge disappointment to their students, who come expecting reality to match reputation. They need to be fixed or abolished.

I don't often think much about the service academies when I'm thinking about higher education, but perhaps I ought to more often.
