Playing the game

It seems that, no matter how far along you are in your graduate program, your only way to survive ... to keep moving forward ... is to play the game. I was reminded of this when a polite request I made to my committee backfired into a series of emails, in which members told me that my opinion was wrong and they would disregard it. I have to respect and follow their every whim, but they cannot extend me the same courtesy for this one simple thing.

What a bunch of crap.
