Dear job candidates -- so, so weak.

It seems like a kind of mean thing to say to people on the job market

Yes, I keep seeing that too.

How much responsibility for falling student?
That depends. Did you push him?

Alas, greatness and meaning are rarely coterminous with popular familiarity.

Not misread, but mis-decoded: I thought it was about drFaust, a forumite active in the recent past, IIRC.

You must be your own snow, Dr_Alcott.  You must lift, and sparkle, and then melt away.

Returning students

Again, not exactly misread, but I keep on reading 'returning' as a gerund instead of a present participle. Maybe because I sometimes wish we could. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to say: 'Here, this one's not quite done yet, pop him back into school (or first year) for another year or so?
