I guess I'd probably subscribe to the laziness theory too, if I didn't have a child affected by the condition. Maybe I'm only lazy with one of my children, though, since the others don't have the same issues......

Pharm school tuition and basic living expenses alone would be pretty dang close to that $125K figure, and it'd be a lot more than that at either a private or out-of-state school. The money for the truck might very well have seemed to come from student ... more »

You could get a small amount of cash. Not get rich or anything, but you could definitely get a few thousand more than your actual expenses if you really wanted to. And maybe more from private lenders. I don't doubt that a small percentage of students ... more »

They do a ton of really cool stuff there, especially their medical school. It's a pretty decent public university overall. My son picked it over an Ivy and a couple other prestigious private schools. I think he just felt really comfortable there and ... more »

You couldn't take most of your classes at a CC. If everything worked out perfectly you could potentially take half, but that's pretty optimistic and doubtful for most majors. You'd have to be majoring in something that required a fairly low number of ... more »

That's probably a little bit on the high side. It's still real money, no doubt about that! My daughter went to Seattle Pacific U last year and that was substantially more. Thankfully she was bright enough to get a full tuition scholarship so that helped ... more »

Grad school? My son will be a freshman at UW next year. The student budget there is approx. $27K per year, and it's a bit more expensive than WSU. My daughter is a soph at CWU and that school is a relative bargain!

My wife wanted to buy me a new Harley Switchback last year, but I told her I couldn't justify spending that much money on something I might not even ride much. I found a used Vulcan 1500 Classic for under $3K and absolutely love it. Put about 5K miles

For my Note 2 the best deal was the bundle at the Verizon store. The Otter Box case and the higher power car charger came together and then there was a 22% discount through my wife's work. The Note 2 won't charge on the older, under powered micro USB ... more »

There's nothing to fix in the rule book. People just need to read it sometimes rather than think they know a rule that they don't. ii. Blue Flag: Indicates a rider is about to be overtaken by a faster rider. The overtaken rider should hold their line ... more »

I've got that phone. Picked it up a few months back after a couple of years with the iPhone 4. There are things I like about each of them and lots of features I'll never even know about let alone use. The Note II is my first android. So far I like it. ... more »

Ah, there's the partisanship that I knew was driving things! Couple issues you're pretty off base on. I'm not a "lefty". I've not called for Bush to be hung for anything.

Exactly to the point that this is more political than about "legalities". It's merely an attempt to confuse and influence voters by inventing issues and attaching an inordinate amount of priority to them. Much like the golf issue, White House tours, ... more »
