College or University Attendance

The National Association of Scholars asks:
"Should everyone go to College?"

Here are at least 10 reasons why some people should not attend college or university.

I could probably come up with a few other reasons, but I won't... not right this minute, anyway.

Now for something completely different...

It is recorded that Robert Heinlein once said (or wrote) --

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

Why, I wonder, would a person say (or write) such a ridiculous statement? I have neither a wish to change a diaper, nor any intention of planning an invasion -- and dying gallantly (Argh!) is way, way down on my "to do" list.

More later today... maybe.
