G’day: I regret that some folk seem to have taken umbrage over
my ‘can’ and ‘do’ comment. This was intended as a cynical
generalisation, and I know well that many teachers can and do
teach. But personally I found during my long career that a very
large number of the true academics with whom I came into contact
(in two countries) were so remarkably incompetent - even in
their own subject - as to horrify the technical staff who had
to deal with them on a daily basis. On the other hand however,
there were a few who filled us with awe, and from whom we
gratefully learnt. Cheers,
