Education's Heists

Good Morning. A couple of new items today...

  • What's the purpose of education--to manufacture workers or mold individuals? The "free" market drives the answer. See Pierre's Tuesday Column, "Cogs and Ends: Education's Heist?"
  • Anthony Swofford scored big with Jarhead, his memoir of the first Gulf War. His first novel, Exit A, draws less than pink mist. See "Jarhead Shoots Blanks."
Plenty more in the Daily Journal. Thanks for reading.pt
