Don't let Kanye tell you that higher education doesn't matter. From Fermi to the Chicago Boys to John Ashcroft to Ahmed Chalabi to Allan Bloom to David Brooks, the University of Chicago has been hell-bent on world destruction for over a century, and my alma mater has done a fair amount of damage.

So forget When Harry Met Sally. Chain Reaction (starring Nicholas Rudall), the craptactular "thriller" that presumptuously features Keanu Reeves as a U. of C. student who damn near blows up Chicago with his science project, is a much more accurate look at the Maroon mind.
