    Also, in the past, parents were more willing to foot part or all of the bill for their children than they are today.  Again, I can't even begin to tell you how often I've heard students tell me their parents haven't paid a dime towards their college costs.
    This is a common rite of passage for college students:  your parents tell you that they're really sorry but they can't afford to pay for your college, and four years later you come home to find a new Mustang in the driveway.

    Taking jokes seriously is the exact mirror activity of laughing if someone says they have cancer. --jbou
