Ironic Juxtapositions

ACADEME BLOG

In this morning’s e-mail, I found the following two items, one right after the other:

first, from University Business, their daily newsletter with this header, “Four Shot at Seattle Pacific University,”

and then from Sen. Patrick Leahy, writing for Stand with Students, “Give students a fair shot: join Elizabeth Warren and me in supporting student loan refinancing.”

Two tragedies ironically linked by a four-letter word–one tragedy, immediate and irreversible; the other, long-term and still reversible.

But both issues very addressable, if only there were the political will to do so.
