So I'd argue that the Ph.D. is meaningful in freight car research . . .Delighted as I am with Richard's promotion of my degree to the "Prince of Science" (mathematics being the Queen), unfortunately it's not true. My degree is actually in Metallurgy and Materials Science.
That said, I do endorse the remainder of Richard's extensive and wise comments <g>.
