Inflated loans, inflated grades, inflated degrees. Am curious as to when the 'education bubble' will pop.

Don't know about popped but...
Went to college...
declared major after first semester...
Attended for 8 semesters total...
Applied for graduation...
school says I haven't declared even though I have SIGNED paperwork...
declare major again...
am informed that I no longer meet the requirements for graduation...
must attend for THREE MORE SEMESTERS...
And we wonder why the system is so screwed up...

When we're all drinkin' free Bubble-Up & eatin' rainbow stew.
That's what you call a 37.5% revenue bump (even more if you factor in tuition hikes).
Within a couple years after you have your lambskin, a lifetime of calls that amount to near-extortion for donations will commence.

Every so often an edgy social comment will make its' way to my drawing table and I'll squeeze it out. Thanks for the kind remembrance.
And that's the major difference between the editorials I do alone and the best work Allen and I did during the Bush years: Allen's rate of idea production and the sharp quality of said ideas was amazing. HE DID THAT 4-5 DAYS A WEEK FOR 5 YEARS. I'll be very hard pressed to be paired up with that kind of wondrous talent again.
