Quote of the day 

Sums up my view exactly:
On average, I like college students more than university administrators. True, college students are often immature, overly hedonistic, and abysmally ignorant of many of the fundamental events, persons, and concepts of Western civilization. But they are mostly sincere, usually honest, and generally mean well. That is as true today as when I began teaching back in the days of Socrates (actually, a couple dozen centuries thereafter).
--Richard Vedder.

Maybe why I never will be a dean (or at least one of the reasons, though probably not the deciding one.)
