I briefly employed a recent Cornell grad in a customer service position. She was personable and attractive, good for the position. She was also politically brainwashed and as dumb as a box of hammers. She helped me to understand that today's youth get most of their information from the Comedy Channel.

She's moved on, now she's working on an organic farm. Four years at Cornell runs about $210,000. Gonna have to grow a hell of a lot of onions to pay that back!
