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.
Foriegn students are a finacial windfall for state universities. The state pays for each student and a foriegn student pays (usually full tuition). The schools will usually hire outreach staff to find and facilitate foriegn students. Some schools will bend over backwards to make it easy for the student. If your American citizen student wants to go to the same school they will not get the same breaks or any outreach assistance. But your taxes will pay for all that extra aid foriegners get.
Why would anyone but the most naive leave thousands of dollars worth of anything in a parked car anywhere? Especially in a known sketchy neighborhood? These people have no inkling of street-wise. Go back to your cocoon.
