Better yet, I hear that there's many more jobs in Asian phil...Maybe forego the Plantinga and pick up the Heidegger?

Heidegger?? You want me to join the continental dark side? I might as well write my purpose statement with my blood. :-P

University of Hawaii is supposed to be the best for Chinese philosophy. 5-10 years doing grad work in Hawaii doesn't too bad. :-D
