I believe that there is a difference between becoming a first level wizard
and surviving as one. The one may be easy and so all the nine int clods who
want to will become wizards, but after that? It takes incredible amounts of
creativity to get by on one measley spell per day. I believe that this is
what is called survival of the fittest and weeding out the weak.

I apologize for not reprinting parts of the original message above, but I
still don't have the hang of my college's email system yet.
