Why (Retired) Professors Drink

Thank God I'm retired. I'd blow a gasket (well, actually, two gaskets) if this crap went on while I was still a professor.

Gasket #1:
Columbia Law School is permitting students claiming to be impaired due to the emotional impact of recent non-indictments in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner matters to postpone taking their final exams.
Gasket #2:
Next semester, Notre Dame will offer a class that aims to help students acknowledge and understand their so-called “white privilege”...

“The goal for each participant is personal transformation: to leave the class… more aware of injustices and better equipped with tools to disrupt personal, institutional, and worldwide systems of oppression,” according to a description of the six week, one-credit sociology course titled “White Privilege Seminar.”
Political Correctness will be the death of us all.

They think they are on a roll, "fundamentally" changing America. Reality occurs shortly after entering the job market.

Already, having a Phd is no qualification for driving a cab.

"The good thing about reality is that it never lies to you.
If you do something stupid, it will hurt.
Which School you attended or how many awards you have are irrelevant."
(Jeff Gauch)

I approve this comment, as well as the previous and the article.

WSF - Today a bachelor's degree is the equivalent of our high school degrees. Public schools have been dumbed down so much that the first four years of college are spent catching up.

Joe - glad to have your 'seal of approval'...
