    I think the word/phrase you are looking for is “strait-laced”, as in “Strait is the gate and narrow is the way into the kingdom of heaven…” — strait as in narrow and tight, rather than straight as in an undeviating line. It’s true that nowadays most people don’t know the difference….but it’s a pretty good bet that you, a college professor, do.

      Thanks for the catch. I modified the text to reflect the correction.
