Straight Talk

An article in student magazine of LSU by a worldly wise student, talks about the lack of necessity of higher education for everybody. For someone from the Indian middle class background, this seems strange because higher education is the only path to decent living there. But here in America, you can be in a higher income bracket without a four-year college degree because the market pays good money for scarce skills.

And since I am in a jovial mood, I will unleash another joke that I read recently:

A young guy goes up to the ancient greek uber-philosopher Socarates and asks him if he should marry. Socrates replies: By all means marry, if you get a good wife you will live happily ever after. Else you will become a great philosopher.
