E.M. Cadwaladr Strikes Again

E.M. Cadwaladr has been mentioned in this humble blog before.  Today he has a stunning piece in American Thinker which everybody should turn to read for perspective entitled The Academic War On Facts read it here.

Here is the comment I posted in AT.

I really like your stuff Cadwaladr and am comforted by the fact that Carole of the Guardian spells her surname with two Ls.  Otherwise two points: it was Adam Smith who said that universities were a refuge for every exploded theory hunted out of the rest of the world and two (and I don’t remember who said it) that when books were precious unique items universities formed around libraries and now that books are common, cheap and freely distributed via the Internet, they should hit the road again – Jack.
