Students Speak Up

From the Chronicle:

Students at 60 colleges across the United States made more than 1,000 telephone calls to members of Congress on Wednesday to protest proposed cuts in the federal government's student-loan programs.

I'm a young person who doesn't feel screwed by the economics of daily life. That aside, I started at a community college because I couldn't afford a four-year institution at first. My brothers don't go to college. Are we supposed to feel sorry for rich kids who do but might not get all of the loans they feel entitled to from Uncle Sam? People like my brothers pay the taxes that go into the loans these kids don't want Congress to "cut." Is that fair?
