Back on Election Day, I told you about the problem I had when I went to vote..
I’m just glad I didn’t need my voter registration card, which arrived in the mail on Friday, November 16.
Now, I can’t blame the Postal Service for late delivery, because the postage wasn’t printed on the card until November 15. Take a look for yourself…

I was talking to a college administrator this week and asked him to look into his crystal ball to predict the future of American higher education, post-election.
It became a lesson on the ”lesser of two evils”.
The Republicans, he told me, tend to favor “for profit” institutions, which most liberal arts schools are not.
The Democrats, he said, would like to see an expansion of the two-year community college system, which would impact the enrollment (and cash flow) of four-year traditional institutions.
With research showing that 1 in 5 households faces student loan debt, can graduates of 4 year schools pay off their ever growing debt while earning entry-level salaries–providing they can find work at all?
