You guys are hanging out with idiots. I know and hire very many Ph.Ds who are
extremely productive, practical and,um, not prone to stereotyping people.
Severla have invented and developed technologies and products that have
changed your life and in some cases saved it or that of a love one. I happen
to know one who is a renowned materials physicist, great musician,
house/barn/amplifier wirer, medal-winning horseman, and all-around great
brother, Dr. Bob.
