Another Economic Casualty: A Liberal Arts Education

From an article today's New York Times:

As money tightens, the humanities may increasingly return to being what they were at the beginning of the last century, when only a minuscule portion of the population attended college: namely, the province of the wealthy.

It looks like the current depression will kill off once and for all the concept of a liberal arts education. How sad.
