    we have no sons of people with money and connections. The exceptions are chirped about so much precisely because they are so rare.

    Instead, we have the kids - sons and daughters, really - of the poor, trying to get a step up in life and get a college education. That's a really high item on the list when you hear people interviewed about why they volunteered.

    Here's a thought:   Why is college so expensive that you have to be willing to kill other people in order to get an education?

    Do we have our priorities right?
