Lazy Headlining 101. Unimaginative U.

When I titled my last blog post “Hybrid U.” I was really just aiming for a teachable moment. And I couldn’t think of anything better. College culture has handed us two of the easiest, most obvious headline/title cliches in the universe, “Blank U” and “Blank 101.” (The cousins of “Blank 2.0” in technology stories.) I sort of want us all to resolve to ban them. But then I won’t have them to fall back on.
