  1. I’m quite happy both with my undergraduate degree (1963, double major in English and Classics, minor in history) and with my graduate degrees (1979 and 1982), specialty in Renaissance England — not because they got me good jobs but because they gave me a greater knowledge of human behavior and a greater exposure to beauty of all kinds. These things have lasted me all my life and made it a good life, in good jobs and bad.
