"These other people you've been ranting about are something else again. This Professor Tupper. And those other two goons you were telling me about last night --- Manlius, and the other one. I've had them by the dozens, and so has everybody else., and I agree they're not harmless. They're lethal as hell, as a matter of fact. God almighty. They make everything they touch turn absolutely academic and useless. Or --- worse --- cultish. To my mind, they're mostly to blame for the mob of ignorant oafs with diplomas that are turned loose on the country every June." Here Zooey, still looking at the ceiling, simultaneously grimaced and shook his head. "But what I don't like --- and what I don't think either Seymour or Buddy would like, either, as a matter of fact --- is the way you talk about all these people. I mean you don't just despise what they represent --- you despise them. It's too damn personal, Franny. I mean it. You get a real little homicidal glint in your eye when you talk about this Tupper, for instance. All this business about his going into the men's room to muss his hair before he comes in to class. All that. He probably does ---it goes with everything else you've told me about him. I'm not saying he doesn't. But it's none of your business, buddy, what he does with his hair. It would be all right, in a way, if you thought his personal affectations were sort of funny. Or if you felt a tiny bit sorry for him for being insecure enough to give himself a little pathetic goddam glamour. But when you tell me about it --- and I'm not fooling, now --- you tell me about it as though his hair was a goddam personal enemy of yours. That is not right --- and you know it. If you're going to go to war against the System, just do your shooting like a nice, intelligent girl --- because the enemy's there, and not because you don't like his hairdo or his goddam necktie."
