- Schools moving to a four-day week. The teachers can work as many hours as they want. On the other extreem why don't the students just stay home and learn on a computer. This way you would only need one teacher in the software system and you could close all the schools. Ref: The Wall Street Journal, 3/08/10 page A1 and A4
- If you did not pay back your student loan 45 years ago because the education you recieved was not good enough to make you a living in this country, now the Feds are going to take it out of your Social Security benefits. The banks write off loans to third World countries, the courts write off loans in the civil system but the government can't make it up with the death rate!. Maybe we should die faster too, to save money. Ref: The Wall Street Journal, 3/08/10 page C1 and C8
- Good story on the geology of Little Falls and it's water aquifer capacities.
