Big Ten Tea Party Roundup

If you’re going to be paying taxes, might as well make it a party, right? Yesterday, over 750 Tax Day Tea Parties were held to protest rising government spending and the resulting tax increases. Check out the New York Times for the full back story.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
