Not So High Standards

I've joked once about the media's lowered expectations for Bush and the GOP and came across another nugget today:
Wouldn't it be nice if there was a headline reading something like, "Tuition Down Again"?

With real median wages pretty stagnate, the average college student's family has to pay more without earning more. Too bad we don't have anyone in California trying to change that. Oh wait, we do. Phil Angelides wants to roll back Schwarzenegger's tuition increases. Funny how an increase in tuition isn't considered a tax to the Governor, isn't it? Too bad Californians are bombarded by a Schwarzenegger media lovefest instead of talking about important issues like increased tuition rates. It's also too bad that many Californians--even informed ones--don't really know about all the great ideas Angelides has. I do have to admit, though, Schwarzenegger is very photogenic.
