I didn’t go to evil school for six years to be called Mr. Evil

Do you have a co-worker with an advanced degree, maybe even a Ph.D. who lords it over you? Maybe he/she demands that you address him/her as “doctor” and belittles you for your relative lack of knowledge? Let’s say that this person’s high-handed and imperious manner makes everybody miserable, fueling extravagant plots of revenge.

Now, imagine if you discovered that Dr. Boss received her vaunted diploma from “Hamilton University” with headquarters in a Motel 6 in Wyoming. Paul Sperry in Reason magazine has the delicious true-life tale in “Cut-Rate Diplomas.”
