This should help Tech Valley (the one in India, that is)...

An interesting tidbit in the article about the many problems with the current Pataki budget. The one bit that was news to me was:

"Tuition assistance for college students, for example, is in the same budget bill as Pataki's plan to withhold half of that aid from students until they graduate".

I'm not sure they should be calling that "aid". I think something like that should be called the "If you're so smart, college boy/college girl, than how come you can't figure out a way to pay for college? Huh, Smartypants? Answer that one!" plan. I'm working on an acronym for that.

How long will we tolerate this?
