    The “Pied Piper” syndrome.

    Wow, Zonker is really bringing sexy back in this last panel. Those manly forearms. That stunning hair. That stylin’ shirt. That perky nose. What a hottie. I’d do him.

    Sorry guys. That’s what you all really sound like as you lust after the sweet young thangs in Doonesbury - Mel and Alex the COMIC STRIP CHARACTERS. You should have to listen to yourselves some time. ;-7

    Wesleyan offers a major in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. I guess this prepares students to land a daytime TV talk show gig after graduation. Zonker Harris Day would seem to be a logical adjunct to a “feel good” higher education.

    As soon as Duke hears about this stuff, Roth and Wesleyan will be introduced to the “drive by”.

    When I was there, Duke Day (in October) and Zonker Harris day (4/20) were definitely some of the highlights of the year, especially in my dorm, which hosted them. In fact, you had to apply to get into that dorm, and one of the application questions had to do with what would you do if Duke gave you a $20 bill….

    Gee, Sandfan, that FG&S Studies major sure sounds silly compared to majoring in Latin, or Middle English, or Scholastic Philosophy, or the religious literature of the ancient Hebrews.

    God forbid that college students should actually MAJOR in a subject that is relevant to, and directly concerned with, issues confronting the modern world.

    Unless your idea is that colleges should be trade schools and confine themselves to teaching job skills, to prepare students to be efficient cogs in the machinery of society, good unquestioning and unthinking drones to serve their masters: the ones who were clever enough to claw their way to the top of the heap and grab all the goodies.

    That FG&S Studies major would not prepare students as well as a computer science major to be useful corporate employees, it is true. But it might just prepare them very well to be good citizens of a free country.

    Of course, that’s just the opinion of 50-something white man who majored in History and Religion, two more of those useless areas where in the modern age truth has become subordinated to fantasy and politics, at least on the Right.

    @doughfoot; So did your courses prepare you to “be a good citizen of a free country”?

    Uh, randgrithr, I hate to break the news to you but Alex is a androgynous character that could only appeal to a pedophile. Mel is asexual, and until her mental illness issues clear up she’s just a little bit creepy. But a fine soldier. Sort of.

    If it were me, I’d probably burn it. Chances are it would be evidence in a drug-related felony, and I wouldn’t want my DNA on it.

    If Duke lays a $20 on you, you’re expected to score, but first check if it’s real.

    President Roth speaks like a true “Professional Educator.” You know, one that can’t find find his butt with both hands. God save us from those people … please.

    He’s pandering to parents who’d rather not mortgage the house so their kid can study the tensile strength of condoms & the craft of bongmaking.
