I am actually proud of having gone to ETSU. Not sure why, except that amongst the folks I work with, go to school with etc now I am the only one. The further you get from JC the more exclusive your degree comes (and the easier it is to make shit up.)

Interesting coincidence, my law school was also founded in 1911, so next I have to find a med school that started the same year.

Nice work on the motivational poster Elizabeth (and Dave). Isn't that a fun site?

I don't know Bill - many of the people I ran into in Nashville think its some school for them 'Artsy Mountain Folk.' Don't know much about studying there, but it sure was a fun place to hang out and intimidate preppies all day. Well, maybe that's not fair - we intimidated everyone in the lunch room there. Of course you and Roland remember the deaf friend of mine from the college of education that sat with us from time to time who read lips and helped us eaves drop on conversations about us 4 tables away. THAT'S entertainment!

Well, as Brook has pointed out, it's an adversarial system of education at ETSU, and that has something going for it in terms of actual quality. The difficulty comes in getting respect for that in a world that only knows how to kow-tow to the dollar sign. I'd pretty much stake my smart-mouth reputation that the ivy league doesn't buy you a better education, just better connections, but the sad thing is, we all know which of those two really counts- you only have to look at our sitting president if you can't figure it out.
