Thoughtful Review in SF Chronicle

First I reviewed Liz Perle's book. Now our books are reviewed together:

Thankfully, the liveliness of Kamenetz's mind mitigates the bleakness of her portrait. A 24-page bibliography reveals her as a wide and careful reader, and she performs an energetic if procedural diagnostic on the decried, double-crossing system.

Anna's insight is not bleak, it is cold reality. Tuition increase is obscene; and so is the cost of living (gas, rent inflation, insurance).
I am 25 years old and just graduated from college with a degree in Journalism. I applied to nearly 40 jobs, three responded. Mind you I had a 3.7 GPA and wrote for the school paper and was president of a campus honor society. Well, lot of good it did, because now I work for 9 dollars an hour and live with my parents.
Three pieces of advice:\
1) Don't major in journalism (or English)
2) College is not worth unless you SERIOUSLY have a passion to become something.
3) Support organizations like to lower tuition gouging.
