  1. That's a tremendous scholarly essay? Wow, Cory, I hope you don't write like that now that you're a college professor.

    Is an essay more tremendously scholarly the less comprehensible it is? It seems to me that those in the upper levels of the humanities think that if you simply pour densely packed, erudite words onto a page, it constitutes scholarship. I say that obfuscation is not the goal of scholarship; clarification is!

    No wonder universities continue to cut funding to the humanities.
