Some conservative critics of federal social programs, including leading presidential candidates, are sounding an alarm that the United States is rapidly becoming an “entitlement society” in which social programs are undermining the work ethic and creating a large class of Americans who prefer to depend on government benefits rather than work.  A new CBPP analysis of budget and Census data, however, shows that more than 90 percent of the benefit d...

Having an educated, wise, capable and truly free society comes at a cost, and that cost must be shared across all socioeconomic strata. It's the price we have to pay to prevent the dumbing down of society along many fronts.

Few people would argue that the ROI of a college education today is, on average, nowhere near what it once was. A classic, liberal college education will not place you into any kind of lucrative career. Vocational education is being seen by many as a superior alternative to college. I applaud the work of Mike Rowe in opening people's eyes to opportunities that do not require a college education--the current market has spoken and people need to adapt. Job applicants are now expected to have specific skills and training in the areas in which they are applying. For those people who are less academically-inclined, this is a blessing. For those who are academically gifted, this leads to a great chance of leaving one's potential unfulfilled.

But at any rate, there is a greater cause for concern here. A liberal college education is an endangered species. If a degree can't land a high-paying job, well, that degree isn't going to be in demand. The fruits of such an education will not be in demand. The sum of human knowledge will be passed on to far fewer people in the new generation. How will this affect us? What will it mean for the future? What will happen when we have a piece of technology for every situation, but lack preparedness for every situation? Or when cannot make our own moral decisions? When we hang onto every word we see and hear in the media? When we let others do our thinking for us?

Well, others our doing our thinking for us now. It's not the fault of any president or politician, CEO or banker, hippie or hipster. It's our own fault, collectively, for allowing the human mind to become a losing commodity. It should be the very first thing we invest in. And the way to invest in it is with a college education--not just learning skills, facts and figures, but how to think, reason and understand.

It's time for us to re-think how education is done in America. It's the greatest investment of all.

Is anyone really surprised by this?
The governor was having a loud conversation on his cellphone, seemingly oblivious to the irritation of nearby passengers.

I haven't been there in quite some time, but when I lived nearby I used to get a medium pepperoni and sweet pepper pizza and then get a six pack of Bud across the street at Otto's Bar. (Side note: Otto's is now closed-- I didn't like them anyway.) Talk about your fantastic meals. I wouldn't let my roomies have any. Now that I'm talking about it, I'll have to visit there some time soon. Joe, the proprietor, is a very nice man who has been there for a long time.

I don't know why anyone would give this place a bad review. It's pretty much the king of all restaurants in this area. Before the Cosmo, we didn't have a place with great food, entertainment, a bar and a full bakery. The place is a bit pricey, but they do have daily deals. I've never gone there and had a bad meal, but many times I've left there and been drowsy from being so full. It's a big house full of temptation. Also, I've never seen such nice rest rooms.

The other commenter who said the stromboli is the best around was spot on. You just won't find that style anywhere else around here. Combine that with pretty much everything else they make being excellent. Man, I'm getting hungry just writing this.

Okay, it's not fair to compare Luca's to anyone else because there simply is no comparison. Their thin-crust pizza is THE example of how to do it right. The only thing that stinks is that they recently closed their original location in the mall. Try the white pizza with diced tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh basil. You won't regret it.

This other person who said that the food was second rate must have lost their taste buds in the war. It is one of the best places around here. Great pizza and dinners and they deliver... the delivery people even carry a credit card device for the customer's convenience. This is a great place to go for grub-- I promise!
