    New Rutgers Course: How To Mind Your Own Business 101

    New Rutgers Course: How To Mind Your Own Business 101

    Don’t spy on the labels on wine bottles ordered by people at tables near you, because it’s none of your business.

    Don’t then look up the price on the wine list, because it’s none of your business.

    Don’t then calculate how long a family of four could live on the cost of the bottles of wine, because it’s none of your business.

    Don’t then confront the people at the table, because it’s none of your business.

    Don’t then run to TPM with the “story,” because it’s none of your business.

    Instead of teaching a class at Rutgers called “Love and Money” about how students should handle their finances, you should create a class called “How To Mind Your Own Business 101,” and instead of teaching the class, you should take it …

    because how other people spend their money is none of your business.

    Update:  I wonder how many families of four could live on the $80,000 donated to fund the Love and Money course, and for how long.   I bet I know someone who could calculate that for us.

    At what lowly evolutionary stage of development would performance art now be without the tour de force performances of so many lefty indignant savants?

    LukeHandCool (who is cheered by personal good news and who will enjoy a couple of bottles of ridiculously expensive, at about $12 a bottle, Belgian Trappist ales with dinner tonight … with the curtains closed to thwart any curious lefty economists who might be passing by).

    How can one be a good mudslinger if one minds one’s own business?

    I haven’t laughed so hard in a long, long time! Since November, 2008, probably! 😉

    Thanks. What a twit. Go Paul Ryan!!!

    1. Who do you think you are, William A. Jacobson, to criticize a high achiever like Feinberg?

    a. She shot up the academic ladder, spending only ten years as an assistant professor.

    b. Before that she shot up the corporate ladder, moving from intern to account executive.

    2. And what’s your problem with the multidisciplinary BS material she is teaching? Next you’ll be saying that this is fluff which doesn’t warrant college credit.
