In the 90's you couldn't even get a student loan for any degree level in Philosophy. Why? The only jobs are for those with a PHD teaching Philosophy at the University level. I learned this when I went back for a business degree. Yet in the idiotic push for the ridiculous "well rounded" education, students are forced to take useless classes like this. Subsidizing classes with no real value in the job market.

In the U.S.A. they have gone from somewhat decently written and acted shows to so called "reality" shows, think Jerry Springer without the script. If the networks won't put any effort into production, why should I put any effort into watching? There are a few good shows but at least half are now done by cable channels. Other than sports and some news it is a wasteland.
