Honorary Doctorates are anathema

UNIVERSITIES love to trot out the honorary doctorates and sing the praises of notary publics through conferral of unearned qualifications. All this to gain quedos for the university.

All this while the regular PhD students pay tens of thousands of dollars and devote many, many hundreds of hours to study, often under conditions of economic duress and financial hardship to earn their degrees. Do they get the same recognition? Not for a minute!!

Honorary degrees should be abolished?
