Jacques Barzun passes away at 104

Barzun’s writings have been important in my teaching.  His passing today has given me pause to mentally review some of his impact upon me.  As a tribute to his work, I cite for you this clipping from a Charlie Rose interview a few years back.  Maybe if Rush Limbaugh had watched this, he would not have been so quick to shoot down Liberal Studies!
