Kinda remarkable it seems to me.
A fine illustration of the point. (40-second video.)

I'm way removed from needing this, but it seemed sensible to me if you're in the market for advice.
I think this has been around for a while, but if you haven't seen it, it's worth a minute. It's funny and good. "Be more or less specific," "Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement," and eight others.
I'm very glad that we apparently have some young people are still willing to submit themselves to boot camps.
(And I'm glad we have folks like this guy, too: "Aurora hero who saved man from oncoming train awarded the Carnegie Medal".)
In case you missed seeing this.

What you'd expect. (Well, what I'd expect but I'm not a Liberal.)
I once attended another meeting – lots of meetings when you’re a teacher! – where we were working to approve a new weekly schedule for students. When I said I was concerned that it would require leaving some sections of the curriculum untaught, a colleague said that might actually be a good thing, because most of our students are white and their test scores dropping slightly would help shrink the racial achievement gap in our state. Again, to clarify: I don’t mean my colleague had a a more nuanced approach to testing that a dishonest interlocutor could twist to sound like that. I mean my colleague literally spoke those words.

I'm old enough to remember when there used to committee hearings and at least some debate about spending bills. Not so much anymore.
Huge bills containing hundreds or even thousands of pages of print where the devil in the details can be hidden from the minions are far too common. Bills joining and including several unrelated issues seldom make sense. It seems more like a wish list of things that would never get through the process on their own suddenly become more reasonable when coupled with other unimpressive ideas. Most of the large spending bills being passed in Washington deserve our condemnation.
I would hope--think?--so.
Unless your professional mistakes could cause severe injury or financial ruin, you shouldn’t need a license to work, and unless your government job is a highly technical specialty, it shouldn’t require a college diploma or advanced degree.
I enthusiastically agree with one big caveat. She's doesn't detail how those college degrees became the gatekeepers: Griggs v. Duke Power. And if firms stopped seeking them, she doesn't explain what would take their place.

"Forgotten," sure: I was a rising high school senior then but until a few weeks ago I had never heard of it. Supposedly 600,000 folks attended. Just the Allman Brothers, The Band, and the Grateful Dead.

Yeah, they don't sound quite as good as they did: Keith and Mick were both 78 and Charlie is gone. But like the crack about the talking dog, the interesting thing isn't that he doesn't know how to say much, it's that he can talk at all.
Also one-hit wonders by genre.
Well, "nobody" is an exaggeration. And when confronted with how much higher their grocery bills would be without them, I don't doubt some of those currently opposed would change their minds.
