54. In many ways, I suppose we have.
I'm just generally in far too snarky a mood lately.

(I re-read my post and realized that it's the kind of response usually reserved to tenured professors in my field trying to be 'encouraging' to new researchers, especially the students they're mentoring--in other words, condescending, insulting, and offensive. They're right ... you become what you hate.)
