Having learned English in part by reading James Fenimore Cooper, Barzun entered Columbia as an undergraduate at age 15 and was in his early 20s when the school hired him as an instructor in the history department. He remained with Columbia until his retirement, in 1975, and would be long remembered for the "Colloquium on Important Books" he taught with Trilling, with one former student calling Barzun "a towering charismatic figure who aroused the kind of fierce loyalties that the medieval masters must have."
Allen Ginsberg, another Barzun student, once joked that his former professor was a master of "politeness."
Barzun's greatest influence was on the writing of cultural history; he helped invent it. As a student at Columbia he was among the first to integrate the narration of wars and government with the evolution of art, science, education and fashion.
"It was partly my upbringing, being among a group of artists of every kind," he told the AP. "When I became interested in history, it seemed that social and cultural elements were perfectly real things that existed as forces. Diplomacy and force of arms were treated as the substance of history, and there was this other realm missing."
"From Dawn to Decadence," summing up a lifetime of thinking, offered a rounded, leisurely and conservative tour of Western civilization, with numerous digressions printed in the margins. Barzun guided readers from the religious debates of the Reformation to the contemporary debates on beliefs of any kind.
"Distrust (was) attached to anything that retained a shadow of authoritativeness - old people, old ideas, old conceptions of what a leader or a teacher might do," he wrote of the late 20th century.
Barzun told the AP in 2003 that he remembered coming to the United States after World War I and finding a country that lived up to its own happy, informal reputation. "It was openhearted, amiable and courteous in manner, ready to try anything new," he said. "But many of those things have gone to pieces, for understandable reasons."
He contributed to such magazines as Harper's and The New Republic and he published more than 30 books, notably "Teacher in America," a classic analysis of education and culture. In the early 1950s, he and Trilling helped found the Readers' Subscription Book Club, a highbrow response to the Book-of-the-Month Club that lasted 12 years.
Barzun also edited many books, including a compilation of short detective stories, and wrote a memorable essay on baseball, in which he advised that "Whoever wants to know the heart and mind of America had better learn baseball." Those words eventually made it to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y., for which Barz un later autographed a bat celebrating his 100th birthday.
Barzun had three children with his first wife, Marianna Lowell, who died in 1978. He married Marguerite Davenport two years later. He also is survived by 10 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, according to his daughter, Isabel Barzun.
"He was a gentleman. He was a scholar. He was refined, he was kind. He was enormously generous in spirit," said Parfit, his son-in-law. "He was one of a kind."
Vey interesting, Terri. Thank you. You wrote :

"Leave the USA" if you don't like Oblama / so if you loony left had your way if you didn't buy into to socialist dictatorship of Oblama we the people should just leave? NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!
"If you're against Oblama you should be put in labor camps" / so according to you anyone who votes against you candidate is an enemy of the country? You statement is a clear anti American statement!
"Morons should be fixed so they can not have more idiot republican children" / well that says it all, you want to sterilize republicans like the nazis did! This says it all, what kind of people support Oblama!
"Only the dem party knows what's best for everyone" / actually the government doesn't know what is best for us either dem or rep, we as individual Americans know what is best for ourselves, what wou are talking about is a dictatorship, glad to know that is what Oblama is!
"Your civil right should be taken away" / well again nice to know what Oblama has planned for Americans!

They are different.
This is the fact that you can't explain
They are both candidates who have not showed their school transcripts and their passport records. And there is exactly as much controversy about Obama's school records and passport records as about Mitt Romney's school records and passport records. Claims of "controversy" were manufactured by Obama's enemies.

Terry tuna's knees are all red and bruised she is going to need crunches after being on her knees for four years straight! Your leader has a special spot in his house for you when he gets his pink slip! Now teach the class how one brown noses their way to the bottom! Poor Tuna! Your days are numbered! Ah, waisted senior years, spending four years trying to prove something you and the rest of the loonie left said was already proven! But then again this is America, you can spend four years on your knees for your self appointed leader and no one cares, because you have the right to life liberty and the per suite of happiness, even if its to be on you knees! LOL!

Anywho, I'm sure you're too dense to realize that "jerking chains" is the exact point of trolling. You're too disconnected from reality to even know what you're doing.
And that is why you had to reply to try and jerk my chain but their in lies your faulty logic. You assume I find 'grunt' offensive when I admire grunts. They are the reason why everyone else is in the Army, supporting .... grunts.
You see, the Army takes and holds terrain and that means grunts in foxholes. But they need support. Food, ammo, medicine, transportation, etc. Everything revolves around grunts taking and holding terrain.
But since you are totally clueless about military matters, you will never understand.

Oh, Obama wants the people living outside the U.S...... so long as they are not grunts!!! Just like Bill Clinton, he ordered the military not to assist in helping those overseas to vote.
And don't you dare go onto a military reservation and try to help them vote. Even if you are truly neutral, Obama will not allow it.

Close race makes up for waning zeal in expat vote
By Erik Kirschbaum | Reuters

BERLIN (Reuters)- With the presidential election too close to call, hundreds of thousands of Americans living in Europe have been posting their absentee ballots with a sense that they could truly make a difference on November 6.
From Berlin to Paris and London to Madrid, they have closely tracked the battle between Democrat President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney, though the emotional temperature is several degrees lower than four years ago, when most expats rallied behind Obama after two terms of George W. Bush, whom many thought had tarnished the U.S. image abroad.

Bladder Infection, you're a goofy SOB, you know that? I'd be willing to bet you're on welfare assistance for some bogus reason you dreamed up. Taking after your master I see; committing fraud. Not surprising for a flapper. Sorry, but it's been proven that lefties have shat for brains. Scientifically I might add. Out of 100 flappers, 100 of them said the first thing they do when they have a headache is to take some Ex-Lax. I rest my case. I win! You lose. LMAO
