Hi Tom, I enjoy your blog. I was reading an NYT comment board that you should consider contributing to. (BTW, I have no connection to the NYT -- I just created a temporary Gmail address as a return address so I could post my own comment there.)
It seems that the Times thinks that lawyers have no problems paying off their student loans.
Here's the story and the comment board: http://news.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/05/08/when-student-loans-dont-pay-off/
Keep up the excellent work. Best.
