Happy Easter + On Political Correctness

April 1, 2013

Happy Easter out there to all the friends of the blog. Let us give thanks this day for Christ’s resurrection and victory over death. He is risen!

On another note, here are some thoughts about political correctness:

“As an American liberal with impeccable credentials, I would say that political correctness is going to kill American liberalism if it is not fought to the death by people like me for the dangers it represents to free speech, to the exchange of ideas, to openheartedness, or to the spirit of art itself. Political correctness has a stranglehold on academia, on feminism, and on the media. It is a form of both madness and maggotry, and has silenced the voices of writers like James Dickey across the land.”–Pat Conroy, My Reading Life.

(P.S. My Reading Life is an excellent book for the bibliophile in your life.)

(P.P.S. Bibliophile is the word that bibliophiles use to mean book-lover.
