I could ask my cadre of goons to harass, threaten and bully you into responding, but I thought I'd just ask.

Your goons seem to be tongue-tied.  I'm sure U of I, UC told Gollin that then next time he or the school gets sued for libel, he's on his own and your lapdog, Douglas, is having his own libel issues.

My guess on the doctorate thing is that it was a comment on the fact that a doctorate in communications isn't like a real doctorate, maybe more like a certificate in basket weaving with a gold foil seal.

I agree that in the 1960s, a doctorate in communications was not as academically strong as many others. Perhaps that is still the case. I might have put it in quotation marks myself. Since my intent then was university teaching I wanted as academically-demanding a degree as I could find. That is why I chose NOT to do a doctorate. in communications.

You better get your lapdog to start editing a lot of bios.  And make sure he doesn't pee on your rug.

I'm sure there is some fine irrelevant distinction you are making that's programmed in at a level above the Altzheimer's.

One thing I always wondered, was the praise of "the big three". There were many threads about how one could get there degree taking few classes, taking Clep exams, FEMA courses ( and from what I read, these were very easy), and of course transferring in any credits. Somehow I don't see much education or learning? I have no problem with transferring in credits you earned in the past, but the rest seems like rote memorization and not education which I thought was the point.

Johnson: "I'm sure there is some fine irrelevant distinction you are making that's programmed in at a level above the Altzheimer's (sic)"

Bear: Hmmm, you don't know what it is, but you know it is fine (correct) and irrelevant (incorrect). I'd guess that people with Alzheimer's probably know how to spell their disease, at least for the first year or two. (And on a tangent, can we agree to shed a tear for Terry Pratchett, who died today at 66 from his Alzheimer's "embuggerance" (his word for it).)

Scott: "the rest seems like rote memorization and not education which I thought was the point"

Bear: As the saying goes, "Education is that which moves from the notes of the professor to the notes of the student without passing through the head of either."

Communications/Communication - my dick isn't short enough to perceive the difference.

Yes, it does seem John has misplaced his history, as he has given it.

This, as you have listed it at/ http://circledance.tripod.com

But just as John has said many other things. I guess it just depends on when he said it, that it is the truth for that precise second in time. A second later and the truth, as we know it, changes 180 degrees. Ahhh John, what a tangled web you weave.

Actually John gets just as rude and ignorant as the gang. If you look in his old guides and quote him he wll lie and deny he said such and such.
1-John Bear listed Kennedy Western as a GOOD school. He now denies this, BUT, he said it.
2- He denies calling small one room schools, some with no phone, as real and legitimate.

I have stacks of material, even some mailers, that John sent out about how great the idea was about "Life Experience.'' ALL his schools had life experience as a major component of the degree program, and, yet, he laughs at life experience as a way of issuing degrees. To understand John you must not think of a serious concerned person, but, of a used car salesman trying to sell you something for a profit.
