Excellent Careers for 2006.
By Marty Nemko.

U.S. News & World Report

"Professor. This career offers stimulating work, lots of autonomy, status, and the comforting confines of academe. The job market has been tight, but that should start to improve–there was a wealth of hiring in the '60s, and most of those professors are approaching retirement age. Long term, the job market should remain good because we're in an era of degree proliferation: More students go on to college, and more adults return to school."

Well, all of that was right--including the degree proliferation. But I didn't anticipate how hypocritical colleges turned out to be--touting the importance of treating labor well at the same time as they've converted as many full-time benefited positions to horribly paid part-time temps.
