Joe Lamacchia, a father of five from Holliston, Mass., says teachers often made it sound as if his children would "fall right off the Earth if they didn't go to college."

"It was incredible how they really believed that," he says.

What on earth are you doing for heaven's sake?

This was the signature on an email I received from a new co-worker. Having barely given it more than a cursory glance, the combination of these two idioms didn't make much sense. I mean, let's get real. Just how often do you closely read a signature when you're sifting through a pile of your work email?

No, it's not really a quote from the character, Dim, in A Clockwork Orange. It's the dawn of a new age in America: the Age of the Prison Planet.
