Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy; I pass the winters in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. I'm working on a memoir-based nonfiction book on the American Dream. I blog, quite frequently, and I also have a novel in process, set in Alaska.

    That’s a good piece. I think the average student debt is three times that now. Colleges are completely out of touch with reality. No excuse for it. Their sports bring in plenty of money. I’m so fed up that I have a secret wish that all students will choose 2 year tech and community colleges. Maybe we need some colleges to go broke as an object lesson.


    • Colleges are working in the capitalist system, so why should we be surprised when they invest in the big money business of college athletics. They can get cheap labor because college athletes aren’t allowed to be paid, so why not cash in? Capitalism is about making as much profit as you can. Yeehaw.


Consider this post an invitation, an invitation to comment and collaborate, in an open-ended sort of way, so please share your...whatever it is that's on your mind: thoughts, ideas, greetings, angst/irritation, inspiration, confusion, query, rant, salutation, data/research, meme, epigram, exposition or epiphany -- because I'm all about the synergy and solidarity. ~ JE
