When it was time for college, I wrote a letter to my senator explaining that I was a white male, making 15k a year.
I asked her if there were any grants, aid, or government assistance I could get for college as I did not have parents to pay for tuition.
I also did not want to take out a loan, as I knew other people were getting assistance - it seemed like I was the perfect candidate for such assistance.
My senator or one of her aids had responded by sending me "Pell Grants ans Scholarships for Women and Minorities". The thing was the size of a phonebook!
Now days we have the internet - are these fools asking for free tuition even looking?
