    Then he should go look for a better job. Assuming the 1% CEO crowd hasn’t already sent them all off to China.

    Yep, I’m guessing that is the norm now a days…Right dukedoug…When I retired the first time, a friend of mine told me I only have to remember one thing…“Do you want fries with that”….He thought I retired too soon…

    I used to have a “Grin and Bear It” cartoon from the early ‘70s:
    A laid-back college student (beard, army jacket, sandals) is in a guidance counselor’s office. The counselor is asking him, “So want do you want to be … besides a ‘renaissance man’?
    It used to be English Lit, Psychology, and Political Science were the throw-away degrees, a waste of Daddy’s money. I gather that “poli-sci” is on the upswing now, with politics-as- business the current trend. Everything comes in cycles.
    Maybe “geriatric health service worker” is the coming hot field. Elder care centers are popping up all over. It’s like an analogy to natural processes: The litter on the forest floor decays and provides nourishment for the future generations of plants and animals.
    We Baby Boomers thought we would live a long time, and we are – just not with the panache we imagined. Will we become a social stratum of struldbrugs?
    Not exactly a ray of sunshine today, am I?

    I bet he could sell it on E-bay and get a few bucks for it.

    Thanks for the comment. I’m actually a cheerful pessimist, i.e., usually proven right, with an overdeveloped sense of irony rather than humor. I think somebody on these sites is called “Puddleglum,” referring to the Narnia character, and that’s a bit how I am.

    There were a number of college educated members in the crew of my sub. Whenever they would start bragging about their degrees, I would remind them that they were still in the bilge right next to me.

    Why is there so much interest in trashing liberal arts degrees?

    “…. trashing liberal arts degrees…” Probably jealousy. The Prof’s and girls have always favored the Liberal Arts boys. And these guys let everyone know the glamorous jobs they charmed themselves into.
    Happily, I got into one of the first Computer Science degrees. I have actually said to people: “I play with million dollar computers all day and they ALSO pay me.”

    You have it wrong…the 17 year old is usually the boss…

    Fuzzy Thinker (I): They trash liberal arts degrees for two reasons:P (1) it contains the word liberal, from Latin the for freedom; (2) as I mentioned above, if they blacklist you in one field, you can always go to another, unlike the narrow degrees where those threats have considerably more power. The real freedom of liberal arts is that you know how to learn, and so can thwart the threats to a considerable extent, thus get to spend more time frustrating the blacklist mentality that enslaves us all.
