Who's Buying Shimer?My wife's friends had a good chuckle over the idea that she was neocon.
A former student follows the money behind the new neoconservative bent at the local Great Books college.
I don't know much about the other focus of the article, the "buying" of Shimer. It sounds like the college recently took on new funding and new board members. But the article does nothing to flesh out the neocon angle.
Perhaps in a certain ideological frame
all non-progressives look exactly the same.
