Provocative quote on higher ed from California's governor, Jerry Brown, who is head of the state's public university system:

“Research is important, but the faculty’s primary role is teaching. It’s not the students’ job to subsidize research. Some of the talk of producing new knowledge — it’s like GM producing new tailfins rather than a new kind of engine. Research into reality is good; academic novelty isn’t so much of an imperative.”

Haunting--I never felt more of a Minnesotan than the Christmas holiday week I spent at KlezKamp in the Catskills, 1991. There I experienced the phenomenon of white fish (kosher) shaped and colored to look like (unkosher) shrimp and lobster.
