I went to Princeton. My dad went to Princeton. HIS dad went to Princeton.

My dad graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Classics, and then obtained a Ph.D. in Classics from Princeton, and was then spent a lifetime in academia at Yale, the University of Michigan and at Cambridge University.

I tell you this because of the following:

The Princeton University Classics Department has announced that, as part of its effort to combat systemic racism, the department will no longer require Classics majors to study Greek or Latin.

I am not making this up.

I have not confirmed this, but rumor has it that the French department will no longer require French majors to, you know, actually study French.
