Yeah, But I Also Did A Minor In Facebook Privacy Settings

Another humanities program "deactivated"at a major university, again primarily because of a low major-to-faculty ratio. 

Here's what I don't get.  Whatever you think about the value of the humanities, are people seriously suggesting that the choices of 18- to 22- year-olds, who haven't yet encountered any of the wisdom or perspective of a university education, or of, you know, life, should determine what's on the curriculum?

Really?
