Quote of the day

Charles Murray:
Seen dispassionately, getting a traditional liberal education over four years is an odd way to enjoy spending one’s time. Not many people enjoy reading for hour after hour, day after day, no matter what the material may be. To enjoy reading On Liberty and its ilk—and if you’re going to absorb such material, you must in some sense enjoy the process—is downright peculiar. To be willing to spend many more hours writing papers and answers to exam questions about that material approaches masochism.
FLG wonders what it says to go beyond that and blog about these things.

Well, I'm glad you're back in a blogging mood. I don't necessarily have much to say, but I'm enjoying reading.
