    When they say it isn’t about the money, it’s about the money.

    ABBA’s Money Money Money would make a good background score for this scene.

    Or the song from Cabaret " Money Makes the World Go Around ", which would be eerily apropos.

    There’s a country-western song that goes: “Love makes the world go round, but it’s money that greases the wheels.”

    Why would he want the money? The rich suffer so much in this country!

    “Love makes … greases the wheels.”
    π
    Don’t know who did it. A Google search also failed to find the singer.

    It’s A L W A Y S about the money — only more so when they
    say it isn’t.

    For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.

    Let’s not paint all churches with the same brush. We do have a period once a year where we ask parishioners to pledge financially. Why? Because we have bills to pay. The janitor likes to eat. The pastor likes to eat. The secretary and organist need paid. We also have a very old church which means it requires extensive repair. We’re not big, not flashy and not money-grubbing. Yes, there are big, money-mill churches – but name me some organization that doesn’t have those types.

    Does this week’s strip have some connection to real life?
    .
    Once again GT gets into some pretty arcane stuff that few people are paying attention to – in this case some stats on private vs. public colleges that average folks wouldn’t know how to begin to fact-check.
    .
    My concern regarding higher ed is the overall cost inflation. The “higher education bubble” doesn’t have just one cause. The cause that seems to involve the largest number of deadbeats are job-skills-irrelevant courses. Especially the ones (such as anything titled “_____ Studies”) that are subjective in nature. Yachts are for the already-rich, not for the struggling – luxury-item curricula should be treated likewise.
