Not the same old same old, but a satirical essay that really succeeds in hitting below the belt–where all good satirical writing hits, by the way.

This is why I keep sending you people my hard-earned money, and I do mean hard-earned. I have spent the past 12 years teaching with the likes of Dr. Pamela Hooey, and all I have to show for it are a nine-year-old car, a stack of credit cards bills and a wardrobe that was in vogue more than a decade ago.
