Conservatives made liberal a dirty word, forcing people to identify as progressive. Then progressives bashed the grass roots non-one percent tea party with untrue accusations. They were real people in the majority of cases, asking for the same fair playing field. Against both corporate welfare and privilege, and over bearing hand of large government.

Education is packaged as a collective activity where every student benefits from a common activity, but it is really a mob of individuals striving for a unique future. As the article states, 1-2% of the kids getting a free computer at home used it as a springboard to success. Looking at the collective, its a failure, but for the individual student is changed their life.
I know that this may be a little unorthodox to contact you via post, but I am with Preston Residential College at the University of South Carolina and I wanted to let you know that you are invited to the 75th Year Anniversary of Preston!!!
Preston College Celebrates 75 Years!
In the fall of 1939, the University of South Carolina opened a new men’s dormitory across from Davis Field. Hailed as the “Waldorf-Astoria” of the USC campus, Preston has been home to generations of students. Today, Preston is South Carolina’s only residential college with a live-in faculty member and 229 young men and women from all class levels and undergraduate colleges. To mark Preston’s 75th anniversary, the College will host a reception and open house.
Sunday, October 5 at 3pm at Preston College
1323 Greene Street, Columbia, SC 29208
Enjoy refreshments, music from the 1930s and 1940s performed by the Dick Goodwin Band, and the company of former residents from seven decades
