For John, BLUF: Kudos to Harvard for supporting this. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The New York Post, by Ms Salena Zito, 16 June 2018.
Here is the lead-in to the story:
On a blustery afternoon in April, I filed into a van along with 10 students from Harvard. We had just spent the last two days in Chicopee, Mass., where we had chatted with the police chief and his force, the mayor and his staff, small-business owners, waitresses and firemen about their struggles living in small-town America.Gives me hope.
The undergrads were buzzing with their impressions. Chicopee is about 90 miles west of their prestigious university in Cambridge, but when it comes to shared experience, it might as well have been 1,000 light years away.
As they settled in, I looked at them.
“So,” I said, “who do you think most of the people you just got to know voted for president?”
None of the students had an answer. It hadn’t come up in their conversations and they didn’t know I had privately asked each person who they’d voted for.
So, I let a minute pass and told them.
“Nearly every one of them voted for Trump.”
My students looked stunned, at first. But then a recognition crossed their faces.
