    The delusion continuesMoreover, when asked what is the most important factor to increase interest in ID, all three groups said SALARY.

    When I was in grad school at a low-paying institution, and the prospective grads would come around to visit, we would tell them: “If you decide to turn this place down, please tell them it’s because of the money.”

    I think the original op-ed was quite silly to begin with; made me seriously question if the author has any experience at all with dogs, or only through textbooks and internetpics.. (Are those even pictures of dogs and their owners, or do they also exist of products of professional photoshoots?)

    Fact is, any dog can be taught to like hugs through fitting them into sessions of play or grooming for instance (allthough the needed effort and patience may certainly vary).
