My current article for The Huffington Post responds to claims made by both Anis Shivani and the Association of Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) about the present and future of the MFA degree. I think you'll find the article filled with interesting data; it may even be the sort of article you can pass along to friends or family who wonder why you're pursuing this degree. So feel free to comment under the post itself at The Huffington Post, pass the link along via Facebook and Twitter, etcetera.
