General John Butler and the Level of his Incompetence--Would Never Happen in Academia
After looking day by day at General Butler's incompetence and actual cowardice in 1780 and 1781 and 1782 I began casting my mind back to see if I could remember anyone in the academic world who got promotions regularly despite his or her obvious incompetence and lived to retire to general approval. I can't think of a single one. How superior the academic world is to the military! Now, where did I put the sheet I printed out from Caruthers on Butler? I had it a minute ago.
