Wednesday Satire: Bespoke Building
Downsizing endowments one brick at a time
Having recently logged some off-road miles during the college search process, I have a few thoughts about the current state of higher education in America, none of which one might describe as glowingly positive; however, I have chosen to take the high road of satire rather than the lower, easier path of the rant in airing my opinions. Happily, the good folks at the Cronk of Higher Education have agreed to feature one of my recent my scribblings, Bespoke Building. If you haven’t already discovered their whipcrack funny site, do toddle over at your first opportunity. The Cronk is to higher ed as The Onion is to Snookie — an SAT-worthy analogy if ever I endlessly drilled one in preparation for a completely meaningless test.

Ha ha…yes, thanks for the intro to the Cronk.
Yes, and the high road is always the better option, even if it’s a little tougher on the knees, dahhlingk.
What ISN’T tough on the knees?
Great article. Wasn’t aware of the Cronk. Put it in my bookmarks for future reading.
