Some go to college and eventually succeed in getting out. Others go to college and never succeed in getting out. They're called professors.

See yesterday's 'Sweater' post for a full explanation....
Here's the Menckenishable passage:
...Just before she passed away, in 2001, Grandma E., who always liked to tell people, especially real doctors, that her Grandson was also a 'doctor', asked me if I was ever going to finish going to school.
At the time I'd already been holding down a 'real' academic job long enough that I also had tenure.
Which meant that I was a lifer.
So I smiled and told her no - I was going to go to school until I retired, maybe longer.
Not sure what she thought about that...
Almost heebie-jeebies scary I tell ya.
