<<I used to be a Meat Cutter with Winn Dixie in Florida and Atlanta, Georgia. Those were a rough bunch of people. Way different than the college professors I worked around during work study. I don't want to be derogatory but the people I worked around in blue collar jobs were not concerned with higher thought. They were concerned about smoking, drinking, and going to bars and picking up horny divorced women. >> I had relatively few associations with college student friends, mostly fellow dorks in the radio club and such who were studying to be engineers.The associations with ordinary working people and blue collar types I encountered when working at my father's butcher shop were valuable experiences with salt of the earth types.The same was true when I was working part time at a retail store during college. No charge for those experiences, wither.My experience in graduate school was with young people looking for a main chance in life. That tended to be good, if somewhat cut throat.As to the PhD type intellectual wanna be -- that was mostly negative. They might be studying something, but they didn't know much about life. Lots of mostly worthless theories though. Sounds like Art was impressed by that. I was not.Seattle Pioneer
