And, in a bizarre contrast, in the state of Minnesota, a new Ph.D. cannot hope
to earn as much teaching at the university level as a beginning kindergarten
teacher. This does not denigrate the enormous presuures of being a kindergarten
teacher or the skills which that job entails, but it does denigrate the ten
years (often more) that it takes a person to earn a Ph.D.

Maybe we should judge the pres. candidates by whether or not they raise hostas.
