The cost of an education

Folks, if you want your kids to be happy, send 'em to a trade school.  It'll give them a leg up, and it'll keep your wallet a little heavier.

Because a collage education ain't what it used to be.

Of course, how many college graduates have degrees in crap like "Wymyn's Studies", or "Film Studies" or some other soft shit like that?  I'm not seeing an increase in the number of doctors or scientists or engineers, just an overall increase in "college graduates".  And when you can waste four years of time and hundreds of thousands of dollars on a scholastic major of interpretive dance, then it's NO FRIKKING DUH that you won't exactly get a high paying job when you get out.

I've always said my college degrees never earned me a dime (and I went when they still taught something.)
