Joke gone wrong: Obama apologizes

by on February 23, 2014

I TEND TO AGREE! NO PITY FOR UNEMPLOYED ART HISTORY MAJORS!

President Obama apologized to a University of Texas art history professor after joking that folks could make more money learning manufacturing skills than art history during a speech late last month.

“Let me apologize for my off-the-cuff remarks. I was making a point about the jobs market, not the value of art history,” the president said in a handwritten note to Professor Ann Collins Johns, who sent Obama a letter using the White House website. “As it so happens, art history was one of my favorite subjects in high school, and it has helped me take in a great deal of joy in my life that I might otherwise have missed.”
