We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Already signs of big changes are appearing. Overall college enrollments fell last fall for the first time in years. Even law schools are struggling for students -the ABA is openly discussing possibly going to two-year training. Bond rating agencies are showing growing concern about indebtedness of colleges, and student-loan default rates are very high. Big changes are coming to American higher education.
Let's hope it happens soon. I've got 3 kids who are getting close to graduating in the next 2-4 years. Would love for the system to implode so that prices go down in order to be competitive. Wouldn't that be nice???
