What an absurd situation to be in. A scientist of his intellect, serving as a shill to induce brainless students to waste their money attending E.S.U. A waste because ultimately they would not remember or understand most of what they learned. Furthermore, the degree they believed would be their passport to riches would, ultimately, avail them nothing. Thousands of students would be foisted onto the job market with identical degrees. Thousands of faceless drones, each indistinguishable from the other. Pathetic. All of them.
– Dr. Octopus’ views of college students, from the novella Spider-Man by Stan Lee and Peter David
Greetings, y’all! ‘Tis I, the Scarecrow, coming at you in print once again! I hope you like the “inspirational” quote I selected to start this, the first column of this year. It really accurately describes the situation of students, doesn’t it? I think this is something I’d like to try in the column this year. I’ll start each one with a different quote from my favorite books, movies, or TV shows. This could work. And it is of little changes, that I wish to speak of in this column.
