downsides and upsides

The bad news is that the entertainment industry bigwigs have apparently captured the house education committee- a bill before the Senate on "Educational Affordability" has requirements in it that would 1) raise the cost of education (in order to subsidize the entertainment industry), and 2) deprive colleges of ALL federal funding if the industry (not the government) determines them to be violators of copyright law, this would include Pell grants, financial aid, etc.

The good news is that we can still dance: the last Surya Dub of the year is December 8th - this Saturday!
