Some people don’t think you have anything worthwhile to say unless you have advanced degrees. I get that–I’ve lived with such snobberies since I entered political life over 50 years ago–but I don’t respect it. I come from the political tradition committed to egalitarianism & listening to the voices of the oppressed who often haven’t finished grade school. Elitism gets on my nerves & I don’t let that hang around me too long.
