"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

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.

Of course freedom and choice would reduce religiosity; if your parents are the only reason you go to church, that will end as soon as you are out of their control. If there's more to it than that, at some point you'll be back. Glad to know it isn't evil academia :).

Carlos, right now I think Obama's more electable. Edwards is preaching populism. That never works, because most Americans believe they're richer than they actually are.
