What is an apprentice?  An unpaid skivvy exploited as many a modern intern, or a valued pupil on the first steps to becoming a master craftsman?  To one who remembers the old joke that an intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the The Lone Ranger, this word will always bring to mind the Sorcerer Apprentice, but not just the music but the brilliant Disney cartoon from Fantasia.  I guess there are poor sad folk today who cannot hear the word without thinking of meritless tv show but I wonder if seeing the brilliant cartoon might make Trumpy McTrumparse think again before starting something he has no idea how to finish
