A Moment Of Parental Joy

One of our boys is attending the University of San Diego. The university requires him to take some philosophy and theology classes. Talking with him on that topic this weekend, I recommended he listen to 10 Books That Screwed Up The World And 5 More That Didn't Help, a thorough plumbing of some of the most wretched philosophies ever.

Last night, I walked past his room. As he is an avid gamer, it was dark as usual. Out of it came the sonorous tones of that audiobook. He and one of his brothers were sitting in the dark, listening to it while he played one of his first-person shooters on his computer. At dinner we had a long discussion about Nietzsche, Mills, Hitler and Darwin. He said he's going to listen to it at least twice because there is so much to absorb.

Insert touchdown dance here.
