More Musings

You know who we feel bad for? Physicists. Think about it: These guys (and, as former Harvard president Larry Summers pointed out, they're all guys) can't catch a break. They go out for a nice casual dinner with friends at, oh let's say Applebee's. Everybody's having a good time, enjoying the reasonably priced food and exciting selection of mixed drinks (Hey, Applebee's, "The Solipsist" is always looking for new sponsors!). Then, the bill comes. Inevitably, when the group tries to figure out who owes what, they all turn to the physicist and say, "Hey, you're the physicist! You figure it out!" Writing teachers don't have to worry about this. Nobody expects much from writing teachers. Aside from being called upon to mediate the occasional "who/whom" dispute, we can just enjoy the camaraderie of good friends and good times at Applebee's. By the way, "whom" is never right.
