I wanted my son to go to college, but he choose law school to become a cop.<br />

I don't have children, but I am a child, and yes, my parents encourage me to go, and yes, I'm definitely going. Will it be worth the time and money? Only time will tell.

Yes, manual labor will still have it's place alongside intellectual labor, but I'm going to go intellectual. What I meant by knowledge based vs. creativity based, is that with the internet, well, you'll be able to learn anything you need to know as you go throughout your life. It seems to me that ideas will matter more than skills, though you definitely need to be able to execute ideas.
Yes. Still waiting to see the final results---she's taking classes towards a Masters now
