A Modesto Proposal

    And some academicians wonder why they're perceived as smug and tactless....    Someone evidently skipped the lesson about looking the gift horse in the mouth.
    Frankly, I'd sooner lop off one of my arms than give even a single penny to my alma mater, which still has the gall not just to call around looking for money but then to provide my information to insurance companies and the like.  Mind you, at one point not too long ago, I might have given something back, but not now; my alma mater got a hell of lot more out of me than I ever got out of it, and some of us develop the wisdom not to compound our mistakes any more than we must.
