Support The College Cost Reduction Act!

Kudos to Rep. Joe Courtney for doing this video. This is an important issue for people of all stripes who cannot afford higher education as it increasingly becomes the provenance of corporate-crony-chickenhawk Republicans.

But then again, the rest of us are just "illiterate" anyhow (google Ann Coulter, John Edwards and "illiterate juries," leave out Adam's Apple).

And now without further ado:

I have been out of town lately, thus the lack of posting.

But I should tell you all that our excellent governor, mine and Cliff's here in Ohio, crafted a budget that froze tuition not by forcing them on colleges without additional funding, as our previous GOP leg. and gov. did in previous years, forcing colleges to do crazy things like a Freshmen Stipend to make ends meet. Seriously.

But Strickland instead froze tuition by providing funding to universities that would allow them to operate without raising tuition. It's an important move, since we have seen double digit tuition increases at times over the last 10 years. And I should add that my wife just graduated, so even though she won't benefit from Strickland's stewardship, we are still thrilled with his campaign promise kept.

Go Ted.
