    Answer to yesterday’s question: How n=many priests does take to change a light bulb?"
    -
    Two. While one priest installs the new bulb, the other priest is administering last rites to the old bulb.

    Employment goes in cycles. Lots of people go into a field because there are jobs, then when they graduate they take those jobs, and suddenly new people aren’t needed so much in that field. People go into aeronautical engineering because “the skies the limit” on aviation’s future, then the price of jet fuel goes through the roof, and orders for new planes go way down, so the aeronautical engineers wish they had been chemical engineers instead, because those guys are making money hand over fist due to the elevated price of petroleum. Then that market gets glutted when oil prices eventually collapse, and the chemical engineers wish they had studied civil engineering, etc. The important thing is to spend your first 2 years (which at community college is your whole time there) getting a solid foundation in the disciplines that will be needed for any further study in any field, such as 1 or 2 years of math, physics, computer science, English, other languages, etc. I don’t think the courses Luann is considering would be of value in any further college training or to an employer.

    While at UCLA I took, in addition to the required General Ed courses, lotsa science courses. I wound up with a master’s in bio-chemistry. Now my humanities, arts, and classics education was sort of stunted there, but at my point in development I wasn’t ready for that stuff back then. Soon after, I got into drawing and painting, and, as I got along in years (and explored the “inner realms” during the 60s, if you get my drift), explored the myriad of things that began to “issue their calling”, such as philosophy, spiritual psychology, video, etc. What I’m sayin’ is that I get more out of all this exploration now than I would have ever gotten back in college. Plus, now I see how it all fits together.

    No money in the arts? You haven’t met my former art appreciation teacher, who makes a very decent living painting and teaching others to appreciate the beauty of art. In fact, as I understand it, he’s now an associate professor, not to mention a 2013 visiting scholar at a university in Canada. With a more-than-decent salary, he is no starving artist.

    He’s the lucky one out of several thousand who made it to the big leagues. Same with musicians and writers. I see that all the time here in LA.

    Depends on the literature. I find highly touted
    Russian classics immensely tedious and boring,
    not to mention depressing.

    Ditto
