At least this isn't a gun crime. These creeps used a crowbar to beat the victim to death which apparently is a better class of violence, to extrapolate from the recent stories the TFP has been promoting.

You better watch out for that damned Sabbac-hustler, Lando Calrissian, and his floating cities. I mean, honestly, how many time does he have to make a move on your ambassador's wife before you get the hint?

For all the press that healthcare inflation gets, the inflation in higher education is far more unreasonable. With healthcare, at least there are new medicines, treatments, and procedures that can show verifiable increases in success. In education, the US continues to perform worse yet the education continues to cost more.

Beyond the increase in tuition, there are accompanying (and similarly steep) increases in fees, books, supplies, and housing. As more people rely on the government for assistance to go to school, fewer people can afford it on their own, which means even more people must get financial aid just to attend, let alone excel. While I'm sure that most people who advocate a college education for everyone mean well, the simple fact is that there is a limited supply of educators and facilities, and simply raising the price is one of the least fair ways to control that access.

I'm very glad to see that they have at least decided to increase the qualifications for freshmen in coming years, and I hope that will reduce some of this astronomical inflation in the future.
