Seen Elsewhere 02/24/2011

  • Arthur Aughey, Eberhard Bort, and John Osmond question whether the Union has reached its sell-by date

  • The "Scottish" solution to higher education......"will be popular with nationalists who get to see the Sassenachs foot the bill, but it will wholeheartedly disown the tradition of robust humanities faculties that gave Edinburgh the nickname 'the Athens of the North'. Instead, it will renew concern for degrees that serve industry, in the process killing off any belief in education for education's sake."
