It's that liberals become professors.
I generally think being a liberal is a good thing, except for the incorrect views about politics and morality. I love university towns and wish I lived in one. I have lived in two. One was great and the other sucked, but as a matter of principle, there is a wonderful college town out there and I wish I lived in it. Old Volvos make practical cars; uncomfortable shoes are stupid; Birkenstocks with nubby socks are very comfy if you can get used to them; I used to smoke a pipe; they're heavenly but make your mouth reek and give you cancer; rooms cluttered with books are inviting; tenure is worth a lot; the life of ideas is rewarding; tolerance is a good thing; a well done graduation ceremony is touching. The only thing wrong with liberalism is the politics.
