I imagine more than a couple of college presidents were reaching for the antacid last week when they read that Edward Snowden, with a GED and a few community college classes, was making a reported $122,000 a year. Why go to college when corporations are handing out these kinds of money?

Kids, get cracking, sharpen those computer skills and the sky's the limit. There certainly don't seem to be any limits anymore on what kind of spying the U.S. government and its hirelings can do.
