If your daughters don’t want to get divorced, tell them to become an agricultural engineer, or marry one. They have the lowest divorce rate of any profession. Web Link

Here's another take on the jobs future, from a Prof at Gedorge Mason U. Not a particularly insightful tome, but some of the Comments are worth it. Web Link

I love this one: "From the article: 'We’ll need a new name for the group of people who have the incomes of the lower middle class and the cultural habits of the wealthy or upper middle class.'" We already have that name: they are called 'faculty.'"
