'Mindset' tip No. 34: They were introduced to Jack Nicholson as The Joker.
Each year, Beloit College publishes a “mindset list” to clue professors into what incoming freshmen may know or assume – and, just important, may not know or assume – about life. As a part-time academic, I must admit to frequently referencing this cheat sheet. My favorite entry on this year’s list is No. 45: "They learned about JFK from Oliver Stone and Malcolm X from Spike Lee." Yeah, probably.
