    ...cost of tuition and books and housing and all the other little things like food were a LOT less than they are now.

    "With his father’s passing, young Paul collected Social Security benefits until age 18, which he put away for college."

    That's great.  How many other people are in the same sad situation?  Certainly wasn't my situation when I went to college.  I had to borrow everything and still had to work 20 hours a week.  

    And I lived in a 16 foot trailer for $89 a month.  Try to do the same now.  Rents are 10 times that much.  Tuition and fees are 100 times as much as when I went to college.

    I'm so sick of Republican jerks who got lucky and now think that everybody can do the same thing they did.
