Thanks for reading and for your comments, Mark. I understand the depression/amusement-relief combo. Sometimes I get frustrated with things at my current institution, but then I remember the position I was in at my last gig and I just silently give thanks and go on. Maybe someday we will “fix education” in this country (hahahahaha —as soon as we somehow communicate that “fixing it” means embracing an entirely different [and oppositional] paradigm). **sigh**
