I guess that is where you can position your journalism degree. I agree writing as a communication is undervalued and overlooked. And there is a difference between getting your point across as simple and clearly as possible re: Teger versus romanticizing the English vocabulary re: thewho (I get it but it is still intimidating
and over the top IMO). Synthese is like a good medium.
If I'm not mistaken, English isn't your first language right? Maybe that has something to do with it man...
Bringing the post-grad discussion up again: a friend of mine tried to convince me last night that I should think about going to law school, or do something in the law field—become a lawyer, mediator, arbitrator, judge, whatever. Since we were both drunk at a party, this sounded like a great idea. Then reedo's avatar popped into my head and I remembered all of the terrible things that SF has to say about going to law school. Pretty much dead-set against going into academia.

This, to a lesser extreme.
