    Re: Tucker Commission

    I didn't read the whole thing....maybe later. I can state, without much trepidation, that as a whole, college professors are the laziest bunch of do-nothing whiners I have ever encountered. OMG! 10 office hours/week??? How dare anyone expect them to keep that kind of grueling schedule? Ten whole hours a week? Grading tests? Wow, 2 to 4 exams/semester, most with grad students that do the work anyway!

    Oh, whoa is me! Guess I'll have to hop a flight for Cancun, all expenses paid, and drink cocktails with other do-nothing professors as we complain that $120K is simply not enough if they want us to keep TEN office hours every frickin' week! (except during Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring Break, and the three summer months, of course!)
    I have been debating how to respond to your comment here, but I really can't think of anything remotely nice to say other than that everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    Got that out of your system?






    Just who do you think does all of Tech's nationally-renowned, ground-breaking research, D80?

    Grad students?

    Say whatever you wish, nice or otherwise.

    I'll state my point again: college professors have nothing to complain about, which I suppose, is the gist of that article (which I still haven't read) about UGA. OMG! they spend a few extra hours reading papers and/or reviewing dissertations! Wow! Say it ain't so!

    Next time I'm driving in at 11PM, like last night, after putting in an 18-hour day, I'll remember how hard those over-paid, under-worked professors have it.

    How in the world can you comment so strongly on something you haven't read?

    Nothing like the HogDawg school of internet non-interacting.

    I thought the article was a little histrionic, but compared to the response . . .

    Because I don't have to read a whiny-azz article lamenting about poor ole profs to comment. I interact everyday with college profs. I know the truth.

    Not all college profs are whiny-azz, mind you. I know several who acknowledge they have cushy jobs and they appreciate it very much. They don't mind doing a little extra, like "working" weekends for rallies and when high school students are visiting their campus. They understand those are their customers.

    I am only railing against those college profs who do complain. And, I know several personally. One rolls in at 11:45 am every day, just in time to organize a group going to lunch for 1 1/2 hours. She has a 2PM class, else she'd stay longer at lunch.... Then, OMG! she bitches when the Dean dares to send out an email message asking for volunteers to "work" extras, like rallies, etc...

    My Cancun example is personal experience. I know of what I speak.

    Do your job, and STFU. That's all.

    Re: Tucker Commission

    Okay....knew I shouldn't have, but did it anyway, I read it. OMG! This guy is an azzhole. Wonder if he's related to another Cobb in Georgia history. Wonder if this guy, who claims to be a historian, even knows of whom I refer?

    Of course! it's the Tea Party's fault!

    Now I'm really mad!


    BTW, not that I don't agree that higher ed needs to be "protected" against draconian budget cuts. But, take it from the fluff found on all campuses, especially the big land-grants, and shore up the essentials. Oh, and quit complaining....least you have a job, even with short furloughs.

    Nah, it's okay. Sad thing is, that Cobb guy is serious! He's part of the problem.
