Things to Ponder While Eating Your Cupcakes and Drinking Your Milk This Weekend

Posted in Articles, College at 3:58 pm by davidprudente

It’s been a busy day for economic related articles. Check out this article which is critical of CBS’s new show Kid Nation. Are they really designing their own society, or are the cards stacked against them? Think Lord of The Flies meets Capitalist Pig (Farm).

Next, is an interesting story about who’s getting into college and how they’re doing it. Are we letting unqualified minorities into our elite universities or is it dim white kids?

And finally if you missed the “Great Cupcake Debate” today, check out the article from last weeks New York Times.

Remember, be safe and make smart decisions…see you Monday.

    Hey Mr. Prudente

    I saw a girl with cupcakes today. So i said to her, “Hey, oh my gosh are those cupcakes? We were discussing them in AP Econ today. They are more American than apple pie!”

    She gave me a dirty look. Your class is making me a little nuts i think.

    Have a great weekend!

    Yeah, I guess my class has that effect on people. I get strange looks all the time. Just ask my 7th period class.

    You should have confiscated the cupcakes and told her you were just trying to save her.

    Enjoy your weekend.
