Quote of the Day (Dave Barry, on the ‘Biggest Crisis’ Facing Colleges Today)

“Parking is the single biggest crisis facing American higher education today. Despite the fact that colleges are, theoretically, institutions of higher learning, it apparently has never occurred to the geniuses who run them that anybody would be arriving by car. The result is that most colleges have approximately one parking space per 150 students, which means that many students spend their entire college careers cruising around looking for a legal spot. Many students are forced to park illegally and receive parking tickets, which at your top Ivy League schools can cost $5,000 per violation.” — Dave Barry, Dave Barry's Money Secrets: Like: Why Is There a Giant Eyeball on the Dollar? (2007)
