  • Scholar’s Corner: The Disneyland of Academia

    Dr. Gutierrez y Muhs

    We are not encouraged to bring the children to the Disneyland of academia. Only those who can afford it, may, those for whom the academic job is a hobby, will, those who can already hire nannies on their parents’ dollar to conduct their work, or bring a cleaning nanny from abroad, an aupair, or an indentured worker, as in the case of Pulitzer winning author Alex Tizón’s servant, who had been “a gift” to his father. Our children are impediments to “the pursuit of happiness” an ongoing happiness of exchanging ideas with others, and researching, and bragging about publications…. that is the nirvana academics look for.
