    1. Because adjuncts have no leverage.
    2. Because Sports is the national religion and its priests and acolytes require massive sacrifices of cash to perform rituals for the salvation of the masses in temples truly fit for the gods (or at least for 1% of the gods). The gods of old pagandom don’t have much on these guys. Just rivers of cash instead of rivers of blood; brain-killing concussions instead of something quick.

    I also got my working start in the ‘60s. I never wanted a career in one of “the professions” and was an admin / exec asst my whole working life, making more than 2.5 times what a high school grad was supposed to. Several years ago I remember working in an insurance office with a group of 20-somethings. A young woman who had started before I did but was doing the exact same thing I did was very proud of her degree from a well-respected state university, being the only one in her family to have one. I’ll never forget the look in her eyes when she realized I was a high-school grad and that we were doing exactly the same work. I can only hope she was able to move on and put that degree to better use, but I’m pained to see ads for really basic work requiring a college degree. Granted work experience is necessary and most college graduates don’t have much if any, why would anyone think that someone went to college for those jobs?? Then again, my daughter-in-law teaches English at a private college and says 60% of high school graduates do not graduate with college-level English skills.

    Um, well, let’s see…I got mine in about 1985 and I opened a database business with it for businesses who were not computerized yet. I wrote and edited a newsletter on it. Delighted in sharing emails with my wander-lust techie brother. And I used the language tool on the word processing apps to improve my grammar. I bet you’ll find one on yours; after that you can find an on-line history course for that dark period pre-1991.

    Haven’t you noticed that the more so-called “information” we get the dumberer we get?

    This one made me smile. The work-group my husband has just taken on is small and closely grouped but they insist on emailing, texting and IM-ing instead of speaking, even about on-going business matters. VERY counter-productive and drives him nuts.

    That being said, it’ll be interesting to see what Tenderfoot does with his epiphany…if he survives.

    And just LOOK at that….first thing out of the box the doofus screws up. (or at least it looks like it.) People like this typically are the ones other, responsible, sensible people risk themselves rescuing. Doofus!

    No, no. Whut we got heah is….faylyer to c’mMUNicate. Welcome to Culture Gap, where all the men, women and children are preternaturally self-sufficient so why would you give a message over the phone when any NORMAL person would just walk to the lobby for it?

    I’d love a version of this for my husband and myself. I’m very linear in thought and speech, and he has a strange abbreviated pictograph type of speech (both ostensibly English). Even when we finally realize that we’ve missed each other again it takes a fair period of sitting and staring at each other to try to figure out how to start anew. With that and my bad hearing we have some HILARIOUS conversations!
