“Rich people have big libraries…poor people have big TVs.”

One thing that has always amazed me is when an individual will not bat an eye at getting a loan for $20,000 or $30,000 to purchase a new car or truck, yet choke on their tongue when considerring getting that same amount for student loans…what gives?
