    And It's A Flippin' Waste Of Money!

    I am taking the dumbest class, by an egocentric instructor. It's my first masters class (have taken graduate level courses before, but not towards degree). I hope this is not the way they will all be. I am a proud lifelong learner, and am putting energy into this class, but it...
