A Masters degree in the Beatles - What a fantasy!

There was an article in yesterday's New York Times Week In Review about Liverpool's Hope University's offering a masters degree in Beatles studies. I would just love to quit my job and pursue this program. No more commuting to Newark! No more information literacy! No more directional questions! I would write my dissertation on the effect of Bob Dylan on the Fab Four and visa versa. I hope there will be a course on Beatles radio shows. I would be looking forward to hearing some famous guest lectures. Professor Berman would give a lecture was a detailed statistical analysis of the Beatles' appearances on Saturday Night Oldies. I also hope that the Dean at Hope University will hire Professor Wiener, the Oldies Diva, to entertain the students with her vast knowledge of popular music. She sure can use this job.

What a fantasy!
