So sad to read the negative comments about Joan Rivers, she is a female comedic icon and has made so many people laugh. Yes, she made fun of people, but she made fun of herself too. If you are that thin skinned that you cannot realize she had freedom of speech, bc US allows us to have, then you shouldn be here.
A common misconception as of late is that the University of Miami just doesn’t have talent, which may or may not be true.

Judging from the Nineties’ box office hits, that’s already happened. What many of us look for in pop culture isn’t stimulation or surprise but flattery. NBC’s Tim Russert once used the phrase “Ralph Kramden politics” to describe the current “What’s in it for me?” climate.
Does that put constraints on your research? I often joke with people that when we write grant applications, everybody is lying. Not literally, of course. We write in an application, “Here are the four or five areas that we want to do research in, and here are our ideas about how we should proceed.” But it’s understood by the granting agency, by the investigators, by everyone involved, that if a better idea comes up tomorrow, we would be foolish to stick to the old method.
