Because he put up three posts quickly, Sailer's High School did not show in my sidebar for long, and you may have missed it. I would dearly love for folks to comment here on that essay.
It touches on some common themes of mine (he and Tom Wolfe put my ideas better than I do, unsurprisingly), but my first reason for highlighting the essay is the ongoing examples of high school playing out endlessly in adult life. I feel that in my bones, and have spent much of my adult life trying to shut it down. Perhaps that reflects my move from liberal to...postliberal. Others may not have experienced that strongly. Others may still have it dominate their lives and be simply unaware.
I can think of a few like that, actually.
