zibblsnrt does it again!

I'm not twingy for some odd reason about this essay, though. Go. Read. Now. A Defense of the Liberal Arts [edit: fixed the link, it's no longer broke.]

And 'cause it made me feel kinda happy (and I don't think he'd mind), I'm sharing a snippit of our conversation tonight.

<Zibblsnrt> See? :)

Love you, dear. :)
