I fired off a few fact-filled communications to my State Senators and Representatives as well.
Not to let a good pun go by without a nod, I couldn't resist suggesting that members of the State's Department of Higher Education might benefit from some of the more legally-inclined courses offered through Coursera.
I've been taking courses actively for the last year or so.
Looks like I might just have to go back to wasting hours upon hours on Minecraft or FaceBook rather than learning about things like Artificial Intelligence (another pun), Art History ... and all of those other Weapons of Mass Education that my Dear State seeks to abolish.
IRONY WARNING: But ... I'm sure the folks at the Higher Education Department have reasons for believing that MIT, Princeton, Brown, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Vanderbilt, Berklee, Columbia and the others are just fly-by-night degree mills who are trying to take my money by offering me a free educational experience.
