In reference to “Academics are so left-wing they don’t even see it,” by Megan McArdle in the News-Democrat on Jan. 11, these same “academics” are also brainwashing their students to the point that many brought up in conservative households have turned their backs on their own upbringing.
As good an example as any I can think of is Hillary Rodham Clinton. Hillary, who was a Goldwater conservative in 1964 was a liberal by 1972. Why? I don’t think it was Bill Clinton, I think it was because she went to an Ivy League university. These same liberals control the education and training of most of our school teachers and administrators.
