1. Colleges are glorified trade schools these days
...for aspiring yuppie types who eventually want to slide into a job within middle management and a comvortable, nonstimulating life. Don't expect a love of learning from these kids. It's a completely foreign concept to most of them, who prefer the acquisition of concrete objects to the acquisition of understanding.

It's really sad.
