I get into arguments a lot. This is not shock to any of you, I know.
Monday morning, as I sit waiting for the dryer repair man to show up and tell me he’ll just need to come back with a different part the next week, I saw that the good folks at Planet Money had posted a link about President Obama’s plan to expand Pell Grant funding. Without delay, me and my Recession Club friend JL got into a running firefight over it. It’s what we do. It’s fun.
Apparently, Laura Conoway at Planet Money found our debate amusing. So amusing, that she gave us a challenge: write a 500 word essay each defending our sides. Do that, she said, and they’d post our debate on their blog.
How could I turn something like that down.
