Hurt-

I prefer the Johnny Cash version, not a fan of NIN. The video is here:

"Hurt"

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel

I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

Interesting song to dwell upon for Lent if I must say.

Student loans and debt

It's Time to End the Student Loan Rip-Off (February 25, 2010)
by Charles Hugh Smith

Student loans are a classic simulacrum of "helping the citizenry:" the real purpose is to support bloated bureaucracies and create highly profitable debt instruments.

In 1982 community college was $25 bucks a credit hour. Now C.C. is over $100 an hour.
