      Critical thinking can't be tested in 60 minutes, with multiple choice
      answers. The "No Child Left Behind" attitude is even infecting
      colleges, where they want us to stress "Outcome Based Education" with
      measurable results. How I can do that with art and philosophy hasn't
      been made clear to me. This is a national problem.

      I just do what I do... offending a few people along the way.
