Request for Help — does that sound like I want you to invest money in Nigeria?

#1 son has determined that — before becoming a professional drifter — he would like to acquire a degree in folklore. Does your college, or a college known to you, have a program in folklore? Is it a good one? The closest one we know of is at Mizzou, which has the cutest possible name. Do you have any knowledge of this program, or indeed of this school? Do you know what a high school sophomore hoping to get a berth and a scholarship in a folklore program should spend his summer doing, in order to increase his chances?

I am hoping that the power of xanga will help us to find a likely spot for this worthy and deserving kid, so if you know anyone who might know the answers to any of these questions, please send them here. Thank you!
