Snippet from a short story a student asked me to read:

"Every time I look at him, his eyes take me off the face of the earth and to a world unknown."

This one's just high.

"After playing several out of town shows, I met scads of new people. These people helped me to formulate important ideas. These people that I was meeting at night clubs and bars were different.

However, even though the people had very little money or no money at all, look created a blockade to attempt the Germans come to their side of the clam. These things combine show mow I need to start developing again."

Those Whiny White Kids.

Dear Disgruntled Middle-Class White College Student,

Yes, it certainly sucks that college is so expensive, and it sucks that our government is too cheap to give you the aid that you deserve.

But, for God's sake, is blaming affirmative action really the answer??? Give me a break.

I suggest that you contact some affluent White folks from modest beginnings (boot-strap style) and ask them to start a scholarship for kids like you. Or, you could petition for America to become a socialist state in order to force the government's hand.

But I promise you, the Black kids are not stealing your college money. Get. a. clue.
