    Bravo, somebody finally taking on the den of liberalism from where all the other liberal rats are spawned….Competition is a healthy motivator….

    This is just the reaction I predicted to a Via Meadia post from a few weeks ago suggesting that perhaps academically unemployed and underemployed PhDs could band together and offer some sort of intensive tutoring education to kids in lieu of their freshman years, at a reasonable fee, which would permit said kids to enter the traditional college as sophomores or even juniors thereby saving them all that debt-supported tuition expense. Did Via Meadia think, I asked, that the colleges would sit idly by and watch their revenues decline in this manner? All those assistant deans and deputy provosts exposing themselves to the budget axe without putting up any resistance? “Ha!” I believe was how I put it then.
