“How empty is theory in the presence of fact.”—Mark Twain
I've always loved school, learning and books. Try as you might, you'll never accuse me of being an enemy of Academia. And yet, I never cease to marvel at the perils of climbing the Ivory Tower. Confronted with the "publish or perish" dilemma, the "experts" in every field are forced to devise "new and improved" techniques, strategies and protocols every two years. Before you jump into the next workout of the week, make sure the "mastermind" behind it has actually lifted something heavier than a grant proposal!
