I have actually been told by some that I am still too optimistic about the profession. Maybe there are people to whom I have given the benefit of the doubt, and more, on this blog, who don’t deserve it. If you feel the game can still be played fairly, with reason and discussion, under a predictable set of rules, with expected results, then you play. You write your little blog, and hope to influence those that are in a position to make changes that will help.
But, then you start to see that the game is probably rigged, that there’s no more “best interest,” only “self-interest.”
What’s a girl to do?
