It's the economy, stupid! "Thanks guy from 1992.

"To the economy, the English grad is just as superfluous as the disenfranchised welfare mom in the hood

-- the college education is just as irrelevant as the skin color. Not irrelevant for now, not irrelevant "until the economy improves" -- irrelevant forever. The economy doesn't care about intelligence, at all, it doesn't care what you know, merely what you can produce for it. The only things the English grad is "qualified" for in this economy are the very things s/he is already doing: coffeehouse agitator, Trader Joe's associate, Apple customer ....................... and spouse of a capitalist." -- The Last Psychiatrist: Hipsters On Food Stamps, Part 1
