    Maybe there are fields where the education matters less than the clique represented by your degree, where employers are assholes about whether you went to an Ivy league school or are urbane enough to fit in with their big city firm.
    Hahahahahahaha. You ARE naïve, aren't you?

    Barack Obama: So morally bankrupt that he thinks people who tortured other people to death should get a pass. Likes to prosecute whistleblowers and pot smokers, though.

    •  I suppose I must be. (0+ / 0-)

      As I said, I never had any problems with grad admissions, the job market or getting tenure despite hailing from a lesser "midwestern" college.  

      But again, if there are fields where people are huge dicks about where you went to school, why would anyone want to major in them?  Who wants to be one of those people?  You ask kids what they want to be when they grow up, and nobody says, "I want to be a snide elitist dickbag who won't hire anyone who went anywhere more working-class than Brown."  

      If there is a world like that, I'm not ashamed to be laughably naïve of it.  It sounds both unpleasant and---if you need to go to some fancy 1%er designer label school---a really moronic way to spend your money.  

      Linking to a news article is journalism in the same sense that putting a Big Mac on a paper plate is cooking.

    •  And for that matter (0+ / 0-)

      Why would a company like that hire a liberal?  Assuming a liberal would take the job.
