Common sense from the Telegraph

Thanks to Lou for cheering me up with this today. I loved it!

Excerpt: "Samuel Johnson and Samuel Taylor Coleridge were great skivers who never finished their Oxbridge degrees. Robert Louis Stevenson was of the view that "full, vivid, instructive hours of truantry" were a better education than sitting in a classroom having information drummed into your mind by Gradgrinds intent on producing obedient wage slaves."

*Edit: I like this one in the Indy too. Is the UK media finally becoming sane? LOL, not according to this man!

Ah - catching up on list digest posts, I see the Telegraph article has caused some controversy. :-/
