From Pine View Farm

Flint-Hearted 2

The spring edition of the Virginia Tech alumni mag has a long article about the role of Virginia Tech scientists in documenting and publicizing the Republican poisoning of Flint, Michigan. I recommend downloading the PDF.

(I get the magazine because my father (and my brother) went to Tech* and I seem to have inherited a subscription through from my father through my mother.)


*I, on the other hand, got an education. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)

    What can I say? The world needs farmers, engineers, chemists, scientists, and (unfortunately) soldiers. Virginia Tech’s strength is filling that need.

    At its heart, it’s an engineering school, as is West Point. Engineers make stuff; we need engineers.

    I’m still not convinced that we need degrees in “Hotel Management” or “Phlebotomy.” And we sure as hell don’t need MBAs. MBAs destroy stuff.
