David Brooks defending the liberal arts

David Brooks takes a run at defending the liberal arts. Perhaps not an easy task in this financial milieu. According to Brooks, the benefits: improved reading and writing, increased knowledge of the language of emotion, providing a wealth of analogies, and a better understanding of “The Big Shaggy.” Seems like a typical defense…though I question the use of the term “The Big Shaggy.”
