    Dorms have become very expensive in recent decades, owing to a trend towards suites, food courts, and weight rooms.  

    At my university, for example, a year in the dorms is about $12,000.  This is for 10 months.  In contrast, a 3-bedroom apartment is $600/mo.  That's if you live alone.

    Linking to a news article is journalism in the same sense that putting a Big Mac on a paper plate is cooking.

      ...for a car, insurance, gasoline, maintenance, etc.

      In addition, a 1-bedroom apartment in the U.C.L.A. area cost a minimum of $600 a month in 1979.

      Barack Obama: So morally bankrupt that he thinks people who tortured other people to death should get a pass. Likes to prosecute whistleblowers and pot smokers, though.
