Whiff of something, by Larry Miller in Letters to the Editor, November 2, 2004
“What does the way Mr. Engle signs his name have to do with anything?”
I once had a friend who graduated from Yale University. It became the pinnacle of his life. He was always reminding us, “I graduated from Yale.” Everything after that was a down hill slide, he seemed to lack ambition to rise above this initial achievement. It could be that once Mr. Engle received his Doctor of Philosophy degree, it also was the pinnacle of his life. When he signs his name with “Ph.D.,” he is reminding us he has peaked, and is trying to slow his slide in to oblivion.

Tell me what you think
