It’s not exactly the Love Boat.
Next month, as currently envisioned, 2,800+ cruise ships retrofitted with white boards and a younger cohort will set sail in the midst of a raging pandemic. The density and socialization on these cruise ships could render college towns across America the next virus hot spots.

I’ve been saying for awhile now that high education spending, propped up by huge government subsidies, is unsustainable, particularly in light of information being widely and freely available via the Internet.
