Laura Lemay has this to say (among other things) about degrees and the
people who hold them:

Indeed. In my experience, it doesn't make very much difference which
field of endeavor you explore. The truly competent are not only rare,
but are uniformly an absolute pleasure to encounter when you find them.
The fact of having a top ten percent implies also having a messy 90
percent underneath it. One out of every two degreed technical writers
graduated in the bottom half of his or her class.

You should see how it is in corporate finance, or even worse, local
government. Top quality people are alwyas in short supply. That's why
they are considered top quality.

And me? I stink, of course. ;-)
