New: "The Teaching Profession"

THE INTERNET, August 30 - I've got a fresh column up, on the hideous suckiness of teaching. I give it a B. Writing comedy is hard. For every hit, you get two misses. Or three. I was so frazzled with last week's piece that I never got the thing finished. Although it doesn't seem like anyone noticed. You have to insult a lot of people at once for anyone to take note. I learned this lesson the hard way 20 years ago, so this is neither a fresh observation nor a complaint. But it does mean I'm going to have to start slandering more states if I don't get some feedback. My hands are tied on this one.
