The giant middle finger...

The giant middle finger...  Megan McArdle, in a recent post about the irrelevance of Scott Walker's dropping out of college, said this:
The fact that we seem so fixated on events decades past is its own dire signal -- of the way that America's Mandarin class is starting to think about college education not merely as the basic credential required for many of the best-paying jobs, but also the basic credential required for being a worthy, capable person. This is not merely untrue, but also a giant middle finger raised to the majority of upstanding American citizens who also didn't graduate from college.
I'm one of those citizens, and I've experienced far too much dismissal simply because I didn't have that credential.  Thank you, Megan.
