No Wonder College is So Expensive
Some universities, according to the Times today, are giving ipods and iphones to their entering students. Great humanities technique (she remarked with irony)--load them down with technology so they're in even more of an electronic haze than the rest of the populace. Plus, once completely addicted to expensive technology (and burdened with college loans), these kids will certainly need to get high-paying corporate jobs; no nonprofits need apply. It seems to me that the price of higher education is one of those many unspoken-of scandals with which the country is rife. But there are so many and I don't have time to go into them now because I'm off to Costco!
