The Hunting Ground, a 2015 documentary examining rape on college campuses, begins with scenes of ecstatic high school seniors getting into the colleges of their choice.
In May 2016, my family and I sat in a small theater across the street from The University of Tampa. The University of Tampa Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) holds its commissioning ceremony there every year.

For some strange reason (Texas) people have actually voted for him. Like Trump and Carson, he also has an aversion to reality and an affinity for saying crazy things. That is precisely the combination that makes Cruz the perfect pawn for deploying the McCaskill strategy.
