PS:  Congratulations to commenter “Educamation” for what appears to be a Dr. John reference.  The word appears in his song “I’m Qualified,” whose premise might appear to John Holt—you don’t need a degree to be qualified for some things.
(The 1973 Dr. John song “Qualified” has “edumacation,” not “educamation”—ed.)
