This is water

This is water – David Foster Wallace’s classic 2005 commencement speech at Kenyon College. Update: Sorry this video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by the David Foster Wallace Literary Trust, which is unfortunate because every graduate from any institution of learning should hear it.

More signs of the end times?

MSNBC promos a show that speculates the problem with education today is that kids have been thought of only in a private sense and not a collective one. And supposedly when we recognize that children belong to the community and not to a household, we as a society, will make better educational investments.
