"They know everything's bullshit. They find it funny, challenging, stimulating."

My very good blogging friend True Ancestor only posts once in a celestial convergence these days, because in middle age he's attending the University of Chicago Divinity School -- an academic height that somewhat dizzies me -- but his first year has successfully ended and he's put up a couple of communiques which, true to form, are insightful and cogent and smoothly styled. His latest is a sharp-eyed, admiring portrait of fellow students who are a generation younger than him ("he," for you grammar fans).

He does something all good writers should: makes me want to be there. Also he makes me proud to have played a part in the raising of this generation. I recognize the portrait.
