see this: Some UC alumni talk about their tuition crisis...
Alumni can't afford to buy homes b/c of student loan debt-- no problem, US Senator Chuck Schumer D-NY and a repub colleague think foreign nationals should buy American homes as the answer, see Prof. Reich's post on the Schumer-Lee bill : Why We Shouldn't Be Selling the Right to Live in America
Reich ends his post with this:
"Maybe we should rewrite Emma Lazarus's words on the Statue of Liberty:
Give us your richest, fattest cats,
Your highest net-worth, seeking pleasure domes,
Your wealthy heirs and pampered brats.
Send these, with a half-million to buy our homes,
And gild our fading door mats."
UCLA, Arizona Fight: Pac-12 Suspends 10 Players --interesting development given the upcoming game...
Michael Moore is on CNN with Piers Morgan talking about and showing footage of OccupyOakland- tear gas this morning and heating up again tonight...
and Dylan Ratigan had a segment on the Pope wanting a Worldwide Fed Reserve Jubilee Bank-- see, this keeps showing up -- wonder what Club for Growth Catholic leadership (lots of them) thinks of that idea?
He also had Matthew Siegel, president and co-founder of Our Time, who says that the student debt is actually keeping America’s best and brightest shackled to Wall Street and the POTUS upcoming plan is not enough.

mark_yudof tweeted a few days ago about a story that broke over the summer (guess he is catching up on his reading cuz this came out in July when he fell ill):
"Vapor cloud around large black hole discovered; 12b light yrs away; 140 trillion times all the water in world’s oceans"
--yep, equivalent to 20,000 times the Earth's oceans available for each individual human being on Earth! Amazing and heartbreaking when you think about the Horn of Africa right now.
remember-- pay attention to POTUS announcement on student loans tomorrow.
