I had a professor who made this point (he was a Boeing exec who taught part-time). We always referred to him as "Mr...", and one day someone asked why we didn't call him Dr since he had a PhD. His response was perfect. "I'm not a medical doctor. All a PhD means is that you know EVERYTHING [pregnant pause] about a very narrow subject. Your discertation has to be about a totally new angle that no one ever wrote about before. It's an interesting vigorous exercise to complete a program, but it means nothing in the real world." I've never heard such balance before (explains why he worked in the real world and not regularly in academia).
First two panels were good. Third panel...not so much. If I were you Scott I would have had the guy sitting in front of a computer wondering what the mouse does. Yes, I know, that wasnt so good, the point is you could have done better with the third panel.
