I have looked around, and have a good idea of the relative intellectual calibre requirements of the varying degrees as well as personal knowledge of the abilities of those pursuing them. Those with education or social work degrees are not generally your GRE score stars - simple fact. Why the defensiveness; this wouldn't happen to be YOUR degree, would it, O Prestidigitating Sleight-of- Offhand Remark Legerdermainer? As to claims of snide and supercilious loquacity, YOU'RE the one self-contradictorally greasing your pockets by getting your antidrug screed fronted by a worldwide producer and advertiser of of caffeinated colas to the young (was it Coke or Pepsi again? I know; it may be a drug, but it's YOUR drug, and that makes all the difference to you). Go ahead and bray kettle, you hypocritical pot. You can put up with me or not, but I'll tell you exactly where you can put it!
