Students of today are mollycoddled

Perhaps it was the fact that when they were our age our fathers and uncles were fighting and dying in the Second World War that kept students of my day from being as pathetic as "Generation Snowdrop".

I can just imagine the contempt they would have shown had they heard that we had to be told in advance of any material in lectures which could be potentially "upsetting".

This nonsense started in colleges in the "land of the loonies" (California), but has now spread to the usual suspects on this side of the Pond.
