    Some people should not go to college.

    In this day and age, all people should be educated but Heart is right, education does not necessarily mean college.


    Not everyone has the career desire, mental capacity or self-dicipline for college but training (education of some sort), opens lots more opportunities for an interesting and fulfilling life.


    There are lots of carreers that take as much brain power as college but require training not provided by colleges – skilled artisans for example. Even manual labor such as construction requires askill set not provided by colleges.

    I’m a bit uncomfortable with the message of today’s strip because there are a whole lot of hard-working, intelligent people out there who don’t have a college education and also don’t need one. My father is a very good metal worker who stopped school and started his apprenticeship at age 16. Should I tell him that he is no better than lay-about Paris Hilton because college wasn’t an option for him?

    Especially for a strip set in the USA I find this message highly dubious because your college education is famously expensive and unaffordable for many.

    It also helps if you’re born into a family worth billions.

    I agree- everyone should have an education. The problem comes when everyone thinks manual labor is “beneath” them and they should be in charge. Apprenticeships not only teach you a trade, they teach you to respect your elders and learn your place(which starts at the bottom). The problem in this country today is, everyone is taught from infancy that they are SPECIAL. Guess what- they/we are not special in any way, shape, or form. For this country to continue to exsist as a world leader, we ALL need to get off our high horses and get back to doing the mienial jobs that keep the wheels turning and make the rich, richer.

    …and think of her movie credits and the money she’s saved on underwear…

    Paris Hilton is a rich princess from a rich family. That is why she is even known, more so for the less than savory things she does to add to her name.

    Not to mention a very poor choice for Heart to use as an example.

    I’m darn glad I went to college. Learned a lot of things.
