Swampy Turn Of Phrase

Department: Letters

As an environmental chemical engineer, I appreciated the turn of phrase used to describe the job market for chemists and physicists that "The wetlands of graduate school and postdoctoral positions absorbed any potential surplus" (C&EN, May 7, page 74). I surmise what must follow is "The runoff of positions from the watersheds of industry, government, and institutions."
