    typical. now the rest of us can bear the burden of the states deficit. I can’t even get into grad school at Pitt because they’re only accepting out of state students (tuition) right now

    Capitalism at its finest. God bless them one and all. Remember — if we want the best we should pay for them.

    Except they’re not the best. They suck. Evidenced by the mess we’re in. This isn’t capitalism at all. Capitalism implies a business market, goods being created and sold. This is socialism.

    I back Corbett about 90%, but he needs to cut legislative costs, even if it is just symbolic.
