What would James say?
The is second rightwing piece by the same author at the same website in a week, from the USA, by the same author, a nice guy who seems to know a lot about cli-fi novels and movies, and writes about TIMESCAPE here, from 1980, but in general he is criticizing the use of tax-payers money to fund public and private colleges for the teaching of cli-fi classes on USA and UK campuses. If YOU have time and inclination, you can leave a polite COMMENT at his post and let him know YOUR feelings. His name is Dave Huber, in the DC area, a good guy (but on the other side of the debate) and a 50-something high school teacher who also moonlights as a writer for this rightwing site called THE COLLEGE FIX
