Why Is Uncle Sam Playin' Me?

I got the most disturbing email from the government disguised as FAFSA (free application for federal student aid).

I've been filling this little form out since '93 in order to finance my BA from Alfred University. And then again for this MFA from Fairleigh Dickinson.

It never occurred to me that there was a limit. But apparently... I've reached it.

The email was to notify me that I have exceeded the allowed loans.

It also notified me that I have borrowed some $75,000 from the government to pay for school.

I suppose this solves the whole, "What's my next degree?" dilemma...

So... now I'm focussing on which countries do not have extradition treaties with the US... right now my choices include: The People's Republic of China, Brazil, Namibia and North Korea.

Who's up for a trip to Rio??
