Athens vs Sparta

On the Severn: *

(Naval Academy) students attracted to history or political science say that they have no trouble satisfying their craving for intellectual challenge and reflection. (Professor Williamson) Murray said that, while he was appalled by the ignorance of the incoming freshmen, he found that the students in one of his senior seminars were “by far and away” superior to those he had taught at Yale and elsewhere in their “level of sophistication, writing ability, understanding of history, capacity to connect the dots between different periods.” These students are just as inclined as good students everywhere to question established wisdom.

Good lads (and lasses).
