Poor Crommunist

Hopefully all you read Ian Cromwell’s terrific blog, Crommunist Manifesto. He’s going to need your support in the future. Today he got the news he will be enrolled in a PhD program. As most of you know, nearly two years ago I finished a 10-year sentence in a PhD program. I know what you’re thinking:

Whenever I hear of someone starting one I have a moment of panic imagining having to do it again. I have to remind myself that for the fresh faced new entrant it won’t be like it would be for me were I to have to start over. I have to remember that that their soul hasn’t already been ground into dust. So it can probably endure more than mine could were I now sentenced to such a program. But still, I wince for them.

You can share your condolences with Ian here.
