Passing Through

Simonds, C. H.
June 1982
National Review;6/25/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 12, p764
The article profiles journalist Joseph Sobran. Sobran grew up in Ypsilanti. Michigan, in a steady, middle-class, Stevenson Democrat household. He spent five years at the Eastern Michigan University. Campus life was then thick with the radicalism of the Sixties. Sobran recalls that his friends were being given all these encouragements and enticements to become radicals, then being told they were brave nonconformists for doing so. After college, he slid into graduate school and a job in a mental hospital on the midnight shift, so that he could just read or engage in polemics.
