Watch Your Head (2/7/10)

When I was a senior in college, the state of Illinois decided to close its budget gap by declaring me ineligible for a tuition grant. That would have been fine had their decision not come two weeks before the start of the fall semester. As it happened, the state’s number crunching left a $2,500 hole in my tuition payment, which required an emergency trip to my college’s financial aid office. I remember standing in line for hours with dozens of other students, most of whom were in the same boat. When I finally made my way to the front of the line, I was in no mood to talk about hair.
