    One of my students, a military reservist, went absolutely batshit in class discussion at the very notion that somebody, somewhere, anywhere might be getting something for nothing. Really - of all the world's problems, that was the most important to her.

    Then there was the paper another student wrote yesterday about "muslim infiltration" and Obama turning our country into a "socialist dictatorship." This is after I told her not to write it because she wouldn't be able to find any credible research sources.
