There is that old adage (is there any other kind of adage?) that says that if you stay inside the ape house at the zoo for long enough you stop being able to smell their shit. Being in the academic bubble seems unnervingly similar; the ape house is the college and the shit is the echo-chamber, think-alike chatter that passes for deep thoughts. Oh, yes, and the professors¹ are the apes who seem to be the only ones who enjoy throwing their crap all over the place.
