that's me in the corner
Two interesting studies from people I know at UT:
- It's not college that makes the kids lose their religion, it's the sex, drugs, and rock & roll. And kids who go to college are more likely to remain religious. As Mark Regnerus points out, most professors aren't hell-bent on destroying the religious views of students. Academics are there to teach our students the subject. Period. (HT: Melissa Rogers)
- A few Texans like Hillary. I wouldn't read too much into this, although I know the professor who was involved in this poll. The methodology will certainly be sound, but Hillary is unelectable nationally.
