Brent Weinstein (taller) and Heather Heying (shorter)

In December of 2017 I wrote Not Left Enough, the story of former university professor Bret Weinstein and his wife, Heather Heying, also a former university professor.  I say they are former professors because both worked at notoriously leftist Evergreen State College.  Weinstein ran afoul of the special snowflakes in attendance there when he declined to remain away from campus on a day declared a “day of absence”: no whites allowed.  Legitimately fearing for their safety, Weinstein and Heying negotiated a substantial settlement and resigned.

Every year I collect the inadvertently funny things my students write. One might be tempted to think these linguistic train wrecks reflect a general decline in intelligence and ability of contemporary students, but for the most part, they’re a result of kids pushing a little past their current abilities—that’s a good thing—or simply not bothering to proofread, which is a bad, but common, thing.  In any case, I hope, gentle readers, you enjoy this year’s misbegotten crop:

Is That Like A Short Speech?  Americans are like a whole nother speechies.”

What Are Your Goals For The Year?  Meat new friends.”

It was in August of 2010 that Newsweek Magazine, a money-losing proposition, was sold.  What was the selling price you ask?  A billion?  A half-billion?  Ten million? A million?  $1.25?  No.  Newsweek was sold for the princely sum of one dollar.  On the occasion of the mass shooting at Sante Fe High School in Santa Fe, TX, we discover, once again, why that price was outrageously high.

The May 18thmass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Sante Fe, Texas is both common, and unusual in at least one significant way.  Even as the usual suspects ramp up their predictable rhetoric and faux-outrage, it is important to keep in mind this kind of crime remains notable primarily because of its rarity, and the desperation of the political left, which includes much of the media, to capitalize on each uncommon incident. Here’s what we know and don’t know:

S&W M&P 22-15

In Media Masculinity (snicker) And The AR-15, I wrote of a brave journalist who suffered so we wouldn’t have to.  He actually fired an AR-15, which left him battered, horrified, and with a temporary case of PTSD.  In venturing into the arcane and terrifying world of firearms and their owners, that intrepid, if girly-manish, journalist was not breaking new literary ground. Such safaris into deepest, darkest red country are relatively common.  What’s uncommon is a reporter that actually does more than ridicule the sister-marrying, missing toothed rubes that hosted his safari.  Such a reporter is one Matthew Albright, writing in USA Today, in an article titled:

The end of the school year is a bittersweet time for teachers. It’s satisfying to complete a year of hard work. That engenders a feeling of accomplishment, of satisfaction. But it’s always sad, because very soon, our classes will meet for the final time. Each class with its unique personality, comprised of the unique personalities of each of you, will die, never to be reborn.
