...life is really hell...

A colleague and I were pondering what we would do in our golden years, and we decided that if we became Wal Mart greeters (as some of our students seem to think that is how professors should behave), we would spring long quotations from Democracy and Education (good ole #5) on unsuspecting shoppers as they head for the video games. Then my friend reflected a bit more:

What a world we live in, John Dewey’s ideas are dangerous; having a president who possesses nary a thought is good; and there is talk that Arnold Schwarzenegger should run for president and Ben Affleck for the Senate in Virginia. Have you ever pondered the possibility that what we consider as life is really hell and we must have done something really, really bad to deserve this?
