TOO CLEVER BY HALF? I'm a little late reacting to the latest Beloit College mindset list, which Inside Higher Ed posted last Wednesday as "What Your Freshmen Don't Know." Let me offer a few quibbles. Take

Please. Madden has been the guy with the Thanksgiving turducken. Or
Television stations have never concluded the broadcast day with the national anthem.
That's evidence the Beloit College folks aren't staying up all night thinking about these. To be sure, a lot of cable stations never sign off, but there is at least one State Line area station that still plays the National Anthem before going to a tower-cam, rather than a test pattern. Yeah, I can hear it, what's a test pattern? (I had to do a bit of Google mining, so should you!)
