9/23    I'm in grad school part time, and the professor I was trying to get
        to advise me just sent me "What you suggest (remote, part-time, topic
        formulation) doesn't fit my advising style..."  Does anyone know
        what "topic formulation" might mean in this context?  I come with
        funding from work, but the topics I can choose are somewhat limited.
        Could be a reference to that...

        \_ "I tell my classes that if they just do what they are supposed to do
            and meet the standard requirements, that they will earn a C."

2/8     Why does UC suck so hard? I did undergrad at UCB and I hated it.
        Professors couldn't teach, class workload was high, and the system
        was designed to "weed out" students and demoralize them rather
        than teach and encourage them. I always got lower grades than I
        deserved for the amount of work I put in. I don't know if this was
        because of the curve which insists that 50% of students should get

6/27    Milton Friedman still ticking lefties off even from the grave
        http://westernstandard.blogs.com/shotgun/2008/06/milton-friedm-1.html
        My personal view on this whole affair is: what a knee jerk reaction!
        Obviously, all these lefties do not seem to realize that
        Milton Friedman's pro-free market views have become mainstream economic
