There are those who do…and those who tell others what to do

The other night at dinner, Bill and I were discussing the Great Books curriculum at Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula, California. We agreed that if our kids wanted a liberal arts education, this would be the program we would encourage them to consider.

“But honestly, Bill, I really would like them to enroll in a Bachelor of Science program. I just, uh, well, no offense, but I just don’t see the use of a liberal arts education.”

“Face it, Michelle, people with a Bachelor of Science degree work for people with a Bachelor of Arts degree.”

Harumph.

Dear, sweet husband, please note that I did not argue with you.
