    We sacrificed mightily to make sure our 3 kids all graduated debt-free, so they could be free to choose whatever career path was best for them. We were delighted to be able to do this.
    We did the same for our two (while each paying alimony to our exes and paying off debt and living paycheck to paycheck, taking the coin jar to the supermarket to help pay for the next week's groceries). In the end, it turned out great for all of us, but it was not easy.

    We are just middle-class folks, working to hold up our part of the sky. Without our educations, though, none of this would have been possible. I am very fearful about the damage that the GOP is inflicting on our society with their austerity measures. It will take several generations to recover, and then only if alternative political sentiments prevail.

      that Republicans appear to feel toward unions, a living wage, and the working poor. The foaming-at-the-mouth rage they feel toward making college education accessible via public colleges with affordable tuitions. Why in God's name do they feel a compulsion to smack the crap out of everyone not born with a silver spoon in his/her mouth?
