It's said that putting a child through college is like buying a luxury car and driving it over a cliff, every year for four years. My daughter chose an out-of-state college. A private college. A women's college. She majored in art history, with a minor in drama. I bought her a used station wagon. She interned at Walt Disney World in Orlando. On graduation day, the college president gave her a "summa cum laude" diploma. My daughter drove back to Florida, looking for work. She called. "Daddy, I got the job!" My daughter is Pluto.
