Dan,

Absolutely agree. The one course I did take, thirty years and two thirds of my life ago, they actually started us by having us shoot one sheet in a Graphic, just so we could see what it was like. I just have a pet peeve about the notion that a piece of paper indicates expertise, partly from having had to remediate English and Algebra deficiencies of honors graduates with degrees in 'practical' fields like Business or Communications. Keeps reminding me of the scene in the Wizard of Oz where the wizard explains to Scarecrow that he doesn't need a brain, just a diploma.
