This quote doesn’t have much to do with the rest of the posting that it came from, but I couldn’t resist it.

“It is not enough that there be a Williams College,” writes Paul Fussell in his book Class (1983); “there must also be a University of Southern Mississippi to give it value.”

I don’t think that I agree with the sentiment here, but it is certainly good to see Williams rather than Amherst as the reference. But, then again, if I could change only a single word in 20th century cinema it would be “Williams” for “Amherst” at a key point in Animal House. [Classy — ed. Perhaps we’ll do poetry tomorrow.]
