In Case You have been Bored...

Hey all! Got some good things to ponder in this weird, wacky and sophisticated world we live in. Hat tip to Laura Ingraham for these little goodies...

Victor Davis Hansen: Compare the rhetoric of Islamists who hide their loved ones...where? Read Anti-Americanism: Rhetoric vs. Reality

Need Demonstrators? Rent them!

For "24" Fans: Read here about Muslims protesting how they are being portrayed on this television program.

Nothing like a little reality to spice up all the (yawn) bland rhetoric.

Hey Saur! All is well. School has begun again. This is my final semester of my Master's coursework. Now I'm applying for the Ph.D. Never ends.

Hey UL,
What are you doing you Master's in? I'm chomping at the bit to start a Master's Program but I'm torn as to what to pursue.

I'm majoring in Medieval Theology. As to what you should get into, I suppose until you know what trips your trigger it's hard to choose, unless you can narrow down the options that universities near you have to offer. I started at Marquette in the Philosophy program, but switched to Theology after one year. Half of my credits have transfered, and once I'm accepted into the Ph.D. program, they'll probably take the other half, since at least 12 credits of Ph.D. coursework will be in philosophy.

Also, what do you think of yourself doing, say five years from now? Teaching? Business Admin.? What strengths does your wife see in you? From my vantage point, this could be an exciting time of your life!

Keep in touch with me on how the journey goes. Don't fret, my friend. Peace!

Business Administration is right out. MBA's aren't real degrees. They are more like Pedigrees. Although, a local University has a "Green" MBA, MBA with focus in Operations and Environment. That is about the only one I would consider. It focuses specifically to our rural area and the types of businesses that can best operate in an environmentally friendly way.

I have an engineering degree and would like to augment it with something in the education field, even though I don't want to teach at least not in the k-12 area. My work is mostly in public schools and non-profit high education. I would like to teach adult continuing ed in my field someday, but right now teaching night school doesn't fit in with my family model.

Is your engineering degree a B.S. or an M.S.? Do you have an minors that you can build on?

Yes, the family is important. My two sons are grown up. One's out of the house, married with one child. Yup, I'm a Grampa. The other is working and living at home. So I don't have the restrictions you have. But, perhaps you could get the degree surge and press to what's out there. Perhaps consultant work?
