UT Law Tuition..egads!

From next week's Texas Lawyer:

Lawrence Sager, UT law school's dean, says the proposal that the school will present to the regents in early 2008 calls for a $4,000 increase in resident and nonresident tuition for each of the next two years. If approved by regents, the proposed increase would boost UT law school's resident tuition and fees to $24,632 for the 2008-2009 academic year and to $28,632 for the following year, according to information provided by the law school. The proposal would boost tuition and fees for nonresidents to $39,130 next year and to $43,130 in 2009-2010.

Update: I understand that my undergrad school at UT, now the McCombs School of Bidness, is even more expensive. If these tuitions had been in place in the early 80s, I'd be a plumber now and probably happier.

Grudgingly, I link this

Peter Robinson's interview with Victor Davis Hanson is too good (and somewhat encouraging) not to link. Hopefully they will combine the five roughly five minutes each interviews for one listen.

Pope a global warming-denier

From the Daily Mail:

The German-born Pontiff said that while some concerns may be valid it was vital that the international community based its policies on science rather than the dogma of the environmentalist movement.

Re: LJ in SA....

Nope, in DFW. Wish I were though. This 80 (Saturday), 50 (Sunday), 39 (Monday), 65 (this morning) temp rollercoaster is driving me crazy.

NRO starts putting the Hoover Institution Videos (HIV) up on its site. HVI obviously doesn't need SSJ any longer. I'm losing the link.

Could be time for that next electronics purchase...

CompUSA closing. I don't know how they made it this long. From USA Today:

CompUSA operates 103 stores, which plan to run store-closing sales during the holidays.
