Public higher education institutions often plead poverty, as many state legislatures have cut their support. These reductions have, in turn, prompted many schools to shift more costs to students and their families, a scenario that partially explains the almost overnight explosion in student debt.
Will Overman and his band, with the exception of uber-talented drummer Chris Helms -- think Sebastian Bach in the Gilmore Girls' Hep Alien band -- weren't born until a few decades after my KTel find.
When I started thinking about all of the different ways people seek to define Art in their lives - I sought out to ask some of the wisest American artists I know.
A new documentary took the SXSW festival by storm in Austin, Texas titled: Starving the Beast: The Battle to Disrupt and Reform America's Public Universities. No film better exposes the coordinated assault on public higher education that is going on right now across the country.
