The end of this statement was what entertained me so hugely when I first read the paper that contained it; but in view of recent news from UCal Davis, I begin to think I have a new and necessary word in my vocabulary:
“No one wants to spend thousands of dollars for a year in a university just to transfer because the school becomes loatheworthy.”
I don’t remember the original context of this sentence. I have given essay assignments using news clippings about various university stupidities, inequities, blind spots, skewed priorities, and complacencies, but none that would have necessitated such a coinage. I never assigned anything on Kent State.
Well, once the word was coined, I’m afraid it was just a matter of time before the word would come in handy.
Have the Orcs arrived?
