This Just in: Humanities Professors are Treated Like Poo

A very funny article from the Chronicle of Higher Education that may explain why Humanities professors are so critical of Scientists; they have much better digs than we do. In most universities, the business, law, and science buildings are state-of-the-art, while the humanities buildings... well, let's just say that they look like a bomb shelter after a bombing. Oh, well.
But, you can understand why so many underpaid, overworked, unappreciated humanities profs feel the need to snipe the sciences? Especially in light of the fact that they hear 100 times a week, "So, you're writing a book about John Donne? Have you ever considered using your high intellegence for something... useful?"
No, me neither.

You might be interested in the novel that I'm currently sheparding through the publishing process. It's about a grad student and his wife, and well, best to have a look. All links are appreciated. Thanks.
