DonD BS: We're collecting degrees:-) (37) RE: BS: We're collecting degrees:-) 04 Jul 02


I hate to associate myself in any way with that unpleasant GUEST above, but I do hope that Liz and everyone who has been exposed to 'higher education' has taken the opportunity to learn to think and to question.

Without judging one degree versus another, what we call college in the States should be more than a training academy or trade school. Sadly, I fear that too many recent graduates in accounting may have learned their numbers but not the humanities that might have prevented the manipulations at Enron/xerox/WorldCom/etc. (Keep books? I can keep two sets with one hand tied behind me!)

I got an AB in Far Eastern Languages over 50 years ago and have never been West of Hawaii (or East of Zurich/Venice) but I learned enough other stuff to make my remarkably unremunerative life happier than it would have been without. I wish I had learned to touch-type!

And what's wrong with quizzes and crosswords?
