We had a professionalism day. This is the day where they tell us that professionalism is difficult to define, invite us to dialogue about professionalism, lecture us for five hours about professionalism, then tell us that we're ready to be professionals.

Anyway, Dean Hillary* is asking us about the merits provided by professionalism. Then she asks, "These merits may bring on a tragic flaw... does anyone have any idea what that is?"

Hubris. It's always hubris. Life as a Greek tragedy. I raise my hand.

*Not their real name.
