Oh. That explains everything.

According to the New York Times, the reason American college students hate science is ... unimaginative teaching.

Well, yeah. Science teaching is much more imaginative in places like India, I'm sure. Oh, and was much more imaginative when Einstein was in school. Or even, say, 60 years ago when Jim Watson was.

That explains it.

Well, all except for why the author of the NYT article can't think his way out of a wet paper bag. But maybe that's unimaginative J-school teaching.

Conspicuously absent is any mention of nonsense like this.
