Distorting reality



Some people and ideas don't fit on the liberal-conservative continuum: O.J. Simpson, Marcel Marceau, the Edsel, the Yankees, backing up your computer files.

Similarly, liberals are just as likely as conservatives to see "Sex and Death," "The Bible and Horror" and other extreme college classes as a waste of money and time.

Sorting life through political, gender and religious filters often distorts reality. Your editorial on college courses would have been just as informative had you not mentioned political affiliation.
