Hmmm. I hoped the main message of the thread was that 'academics are sexy,' rather that US academics are impoverished. This is too bad, but I fear that in the current US climate, academics are unlikely to be held in the high esteem they deserve for some time to come. Very grateful that I am elsewhere-though the world generally seems pretty unstable these days and our security anywhere is uncertain.

Maybe NYC doesn't need so many anthropology profs. Supply and demand also applies to them. And universities are trying to turn a profit. Huh.
