We are now part of a "Service Economy".

We seem to have raised a generation that "Expects" to be serviced...

Why should you do the research when you can just ask others what they did
and copy?

I just recently heard that a "CASE study" means "Copy and Steal Everything"

Most of this information can be easily located. It's called library
research or web based searching. I fully expect to hear people ask for a
written report next for their PhD.

Are students getting lazier or am I just being grumpy?
