Did you hear Rush Limbaugh today? He had a segment on some Occupy Wall Street demonstrator whose picture was taken while she was writing in a journal. Apparently the journal entry was visible in the picture. She was lamenting about the fact that she is graduating from college this year with a degree in "Classical Studies." She is whining that her "job prospects are zero." Her writing also indicates that she has student loans and is very "ticked off."
Now I ask you, People, why would anyone get a degree in Classical Studies? Where in the world do you go to apply for a job with a degree like that? The bigger question though is why would anyone with an ounce of common sense accumulate potentially $100,000 in student loan debt (approximately what a 4-year state college degree costs now) just to get out of school with a throwaway degree? What did she think, the world was going to open its door and snatch her up for any job she wanted just because she was able to get a Classical Studies degree?
C'mon, she should have used her head for something besides getting a piece of paper that's worth a bucket of warm spit. I don't feel sorry for her. Oh, I forgot. Now she wants someone else to pay off her student loans. That'd be you and me.
