Re: “Indentured Studenthood?

Part of it is Hillary Clinton charging universities and colleges $300K for 45 minute speeches.

Re: “Indentured Studenthood?

Past 8 years? The runaway train of higher education tuition started in the mid-1990s and has increased exponentially since that time.

I might add that the university that you have worked at for a number of years (GU) charges $38K a year in tuition alone (room and board are another $12K). That is completely unsustainable.

Re: “Worth a Shot

RFK jr., someone who the Inlander has praised before, is one of the leading anti-vaxxers. Hardly a conservative.

I must admit, Fagan is a fool and he shouldn't be in charge of anything except a sign on Ruby or Division asking for spare change.

There are more anti-vaxxers onasking the left than the right. See Marin County and Silicon Valley.

Re: “Mean Streets

Captain Kev - Yes it is about the size of government. The larger the government the more they want to do and the more they need to justify their existence. I agree about the "abuse of authority" argument but it is pretty much common sense that if you have big government, then your chances of having people abuse their power increases exponentially.

Re: “Mean Streets

I hate Spokane Parking enforcement, they are thieves. These people responsible should be fired.

However, I am skeptical of Herold's new found disdain for big government overreach. He has spilled enough ink to fill the Spokane River extolling the virtues of big government, so forgive me if I think this rings a bit hollow.

Maybe in the next couple of weeks he will wander back onto plantation and write about how wonderful the Community Bill of Rights will be for the city of Spokane now that Div. III of the Washington Ct. of Appeals put it back on the ballot.

Re: “Inferences Left Hanging

Sounds like you are describing Barry Obama's resume prior to the 2008 election. Where was this column back then? Then again, a chippy little state senate seat in our backyard is much more important than the presidency.
