One day I heard the branch manager of a local bank using very rough language with a parent who has taken student loan for his son. He hung up the phone with a beaming smile - expecting to hear words of appreciation.
I could not help commenting "No one can touch Vijay Mallya and his likes! But anyone can taunt and torture a poor parent!"
He got instantly deflated. True! Drones tear away the spider net. Only small helpless insects get caught in it!

A GOP proposal could snatch your student loan payment right from your paycheck
Lawmakers are proposing a massive overhaul to the student debt system. Student loan borrowers would have their monthly bills automatically deducted from their paychecks if a Republican-backed proposal becomes law. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, laid out the details of the massive overhaul to the student loan system in a speech earlier this month.

Unexpected blizzard kills over 1,800 dairy cows in Washington state
An unexpected day-long blizzard has killed more than 1,800 dairy cows among dozens of farms in Washington state. The snowstorm, carrying heavy winds ranging from 30 to 80 miles per an hour and resulting in 18 to 24 inches of snow, on Saturday devastated dairy farmers in the Yakima Valley, severely impacting their livelihood. Since the region is typically arid, the dairy farms are built with open lots or open-sided shelters to house house the cows.

Calling a national emergency would be the most selfish thing Donald Trump has ever done
It seemed for a brief second that Trump had been able to reach a compromise with the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives. The fact that he had to sign off a bill in the Senate that would avert another highly unpopular government shutdown meant he could have blamed the failure to deliver his Mexican border wall on the Democrats and still retained some credibility with his MAGA fans. Because this was never really about a wall or immigration.
