Things You Learn By Reading

I never knew until reading this New York Times piece that 125 million people have ITunes accounts (the number is perhaps four or five times larger than I would have guessed). And I never knew until reading this Smart Money article that my home state of Ohio permitted folks 60 and over to attend classes at all public universities for free. Kind of amazing all the things one can learn by reading, isn't it?

Knew both things -
plan to make use of my account
and my local university's free classes,
Reading does open, doors, doesn't it?

It opens just about every door one could ever need.

The over-60 crowd was one of my favorite parts of being a student at Cleveland State. I liked hearing their perspectives, especially because they often didn't agree with the instructor.

Good for you, Christine. I imagine not all college students are so enlightened, unfortunately.

Worthy of applause. Looking for the next.
