Character Vitae. New York Times columnist David Brooks — better known around these parts for teaching “Humility” — publishes his newest project today. Entitled “The Road to Character,” his book and seminar both attempt to define a life well-lived. So one can essentially learn the same material either way; it just depends whether you’d rather spend $20 on a book or pay the lifelong costs of therapy to recover from your classmates in Humility.
Back to reality. Forgive the juniors stumbling back to campus over the course of this morning, for they know not what they’ve done — Thursday night’s tap events, after all, will forever remain veiled in secrecy. Welcome back to real society, 2016, where the costumes aren’t that colorful and biographies are just the subject of a Gaddis class.
