cthulhu nailed it. I think the world is sending way to many people to college who can't really utilize a college education. They need to be going to something more akin to a trade school / apprenticeship with 6 mon's to 2 years training as opposed to a 2-4 years Associates / Bachelors program. Something of a more directed job position.
So much for the liberal arts education. Of course, I don't think *any* education would help the PHB. He certainly makes liberal arts look bad, but I don't think the degree matters. You can lead a dork to an education, but you can't make him think.
