Passage #289: 4 March 2015
We are entering the season of the campus tour, in which the colleges try to convince the young'ns (more of them every year) that their futures are brightest when begun at one particular institution of higher learning or another. There are certainly a lot of them. How is one to decide?
If only there were some way to tour all those campuses in one go, without any guides, without any folders full of glossy brochures, without any nervous parents helicoptering about. Hmm... Always with the helicoptering, those parents. It seems like a very inefficient way to tend to one's children. They should be riding bicycles, they should. That is what we'll be doing tonight -- to one college after another after another after another after yet another. Stick with us, and your future will be bright indeed.
