Chill Out, Mom

So the humanities are in trouble — like, who knew? — and even more so in our current economic straits. This article, “Haha, Suckers” “In Tough Times, the Humanities Must Justify Their Worth”, has climbed up to third place in the “Most E-mailed” of the New York Times.


I’m guessing it’s thanks to a bunch of worried moms (not mine, she’s cool with it) — “Look at this interesting article, dear” — who never wanted their kids to do Folklore and Myth. But look, none of this surprises us. We like this ship. Just let us sink with it.
