When I first entered the hollowed halls of Northwestern U., and smelled the musty odor of old books and new, I was overwhelmed. I felt I was in the presence of true wisdom. I expected to plumb the very deepest chambers of mankind’s acumilated knowledge. I felt I was at the foot of K2, calculating the climb through the jagged peaks to the top. I felt small. So is it me…..or are the present crop of students truly idiots?
