Quote of the Day

“As academia becomes more and more fragmented and balkanized into more narrow niches, an increasing proportion of what academics produce is unnecessarily obscure and obtuse, and, not surprisingly, poorly written. Graduate students read this drivel written by their academic elders, and then seek to emulate it, perpetuating the rule of pompous prose.”—Peter Dreier  “Academic Drivel Report”  http://prospect.org/article/academic-drivel-report
