I read a little piece in the paper Tuesday that was lifted from the SF Chronicle, and it really got me mad. I decided to track it down and send a letter to the editor. Well, I did, and today I got a phone call saying it was being considered for publication and they needed to verify that it was truly I who sent in the reply. If you're curious, here's the original article:

Free College
2 pity screws or Do me

I find it disgusting.

In other countries, people treat prisoners like animals... you know, like they actually did something wrong.

Not here in the good ol' US of A. While us law abiding folk are out there scraping by and hoping to have enough money to help little junior with college, the law breaking fuck-tards are getting a free education.

Now, I'm all in favour of giving them a basic high school education if they don't have one and want it. But giving them free college courses that the rest of us have to pay tens of thousands of dollars for? No ah-ah.

ughhhh....

That is unfortunatly how things go here. You commit a crime, they put you away, and sometimes you get things that other people would kill for. I know someone that is working 3 jobs just to afford to go to school because their parents make too much. Screw that, steal a car or something, and you'll get to go to go to college free. I think if they want to go to college free they should go to Army. Work their asses off for it. Then they will be given some money towards school.

Are you going to post your letter to the editor, I'd love to see that.
