School Daze

    It's a bit of a peculiar thing reading this article from the Chronicle, remembering how a few years ago I would heartily encourage students to apply to graduate school.  In recent years, as Jon Stewart would say, "er, not so much."  Suffice it to say that these words about blokes like Yours Untruly ring perhaps a little too profoundly true:  "They are romantics who must suddenly become realpolitikers."  (Insert wistful and slightly embarrassed shrug here.)  Some of us got the cynicism but not the professionalization to make us oblivious to it.
