    but then again I went to a high school, in a town with an Ivy League university in it no less, where most of my teachers wouldn't have heard of Hesse, Nietzsche, etc. (Though the AP English teacher senior year did have us read "Siddhartha". And Shakespeare. We finally got Shakespeare in 12th grade.)

    A lot of that was due to the town-college hatred that was apparently traditional there.  We did, after all, have a conference leading football team!
