re: D.O.M. (dirty old man)
One of my favorite lines is from the character of Fred Sanford in the television program "Sanford and Son"...in the episode, A Matter of Life and Breath (1972), he said: "...and I'll be a dirty old man, until I'm a dead old man..."
(In the United States, internships provide employers with paid, or free, labor...)
"...federal regulators say that receiving college credit does not necessarily free companies from paying interns, especially when the internship involves little training and mainly benefits the employer."
