Re: “Why I'm With Her

Selfless public service to the tune of $150 million net worth "earned" from Wall Street and foreign dictators. Throw in a money laundering foundation and here we are.

Re: “Comparison Shopping

Jeez, hard to see where tired old Robert Herold was going to go with this column. Same old same old.

Inlander, you can do better than this guy. How about some fresh opinion writers. This guy's expiration date expired back in 1998.

Re: “No Solution At All

Cavorting on a golf course? Initially I thought this was a column about the current occupant of the oval office.

Re: “EWU cuts tuition for the second year in a row

The directional schools in this state (EWU, CWU, and WWU) are doing their part to keep higher educational affordable in this state. Good for them.

Re: “Prepared for Whatever

Consider: I had a couple of politically themed Facebook posts that got 11 likes, I've binged watched every episode of West Wing (twice), and I once substitute taught (actually, I chaperoned a field trip to a bakery) a bunch of third graders. Yet I don't have a Ph.D. In political science - the credential - so I am not qualified to be a political science professor at a liberal arts university that charges in upwards of $48,000 per year.

See how that works.

(Years back, librarians at EWU actually expressed shocked dismay when they discovered that the Librarian of Congress didn't have a library science degree.)

Consider: You know how to search webMD, know a little bit about human anatomy, and can properly apply a band-aid. Yet if you don't have a medical degree - the credential - you aren't qualified to work as a doctor.

Yeah, librarians just sit around reading books all day. Cranky Old Guy really doesn't have a clue about what a librarian does. Not everyone in a hospital is a doctor. Just because you can manage to cobble together a couple of paragraphs doesn't mean you are a professional writer.
