A Very Large Middle Finger November 23, 2008

Posted by gordonwatts in politics, university.

From the latest What’s New:

Burton Richter, the American physicist who shared the 1976 Nobel Prize with Sam Ting, showed up on CNN yesterday afternoon … The Chevy Volt, Richter said, could cut US oil consumption by 60%, however, CEO Rick Wagoner had ignored his advice and pushed the arrogant Hummer, which a young lady in my class described as a very large middle finger. Any bailout of GM should be predicated on total conversion to a maker of small high-efficiency vehicles.

Emphasis mine. To any professor that doesn’t think students are smart… 😉
