    I went to a lecture by a professor of business at the college my daughter will attend in the fall.  He spoke about the "myths" of the 2008 financial crisis.  Apparently, it wasn't so bad, because almost everyone in America has a TV, and 75% have DVRs, and everyone knows that poor people don't have those things.

    Until the next lecture, which was by a fabulous woman teaching a course on sex, gender and politics, I was wondering whether it was too late to switch colleges for my daughter. Needless to say, she is under strict instructions not to take course from Professor #1.

    The good news is, the head the university got an earful not just from me, but from almost everyone else in attendance.
