Abstract


Historical high points of AGN research are cited, and some recent results are discussed, but a somewhat cynical point is taken that a lack of sufficiently critical thinking has been holding us back. Examples include the quasistatic disk model, the dubious case for Seyfert 2s lacking broad line regions, some questionable research practices, and the continual forgetting and rediscovering that permeates the literature.   Advice is given to students: Don't trust anyone, especially your advisor.  Do less, read more, think more.  Don't go after questions unless you really really want to know the answer.   Get the polarization along with the total flux whenever possible
