    Nope, that's what happened. The logistics end of it worked just fine. Stuff came in, stuff went out. Without a hitch.

    But when your customers go out of business or go to someone else because your salesmen are spending too much time on the golf course, that's another issue.

    What dark days we live in when unfunny comedians can't tell racist and sexist jokes on campus!

    College kids might figure out that Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Maher just aren't funny!

    That's what you say but like most things, you have yet to prove it.

    What dark days when people make claims about what should be done then are gutless cowards when expected to do it. That's you, son.

    This is just his typically clumsy and transparent way of trying to change the subject.

    The last thing he wants is an honest conversation on this.

    Great videos, very much what I've been thinking has been going on. Although I'd argue they're missing the role of parents in the cause/effect analysis. It's not just the administration caving, but parents as well have "caved" to similar prior - I personally would take it all the way back to the public hysteria around spanking and punishment of children. Such things do indeed teach a child a valuable lesson they can't seem to get anywhere else - dealing with their emotions when they don't get what they want, learning what 'actual' pain is (vs "pain" from words,) etc.

    Guy, I've had this honest conversation with you on this. It's not that big of a deal. It really isn't.

    Now, I deal with a lot of new graduates from College through my resume business and see a lot of them in my regular job as new recruits. And I have yet to meet this supposed person who is sheltered or politically correct or feels a need for "Safe Spaces".

    So this "Campus PC" stuff you are talking about is kind of like one of those "Finding Bigfoot" shows. Everyone looks really earnest and believes what they are saying, but they have yet to produce any actual evidence of, you know, this guy....

    Yeah, this stuff didn't just happen overnight. We've so over-coddled our children that they arrive at college expecting nothing to change.

    And that, of course, plays right into the hands of people who are more than happy to use them for political gain.
