Are my eyes bleeding?

I just got finished reading an article about a recent college grad who is suing her college because she does not yet have a job and she feels the college isn't doing enough to help her find work.

Even coming from ultra liberal New York, that's ridiculous. Colleges are for education and preparation. The fact that many of them have services to assist with job placement is a plus, a perk. While I can appreciate a sense of frustration when jobs are scarce and income is inconsistent, it is not, and has never been, anyone's responsibility other than our own to find work.

If this lawsuit somehow finds its way through the system and a decision is made in favor of the plaintiff, which I think it won't, then all bets are off for college coffers. Can you even imagine the can of worms that would open?

Oh my gosh, people have gone completely insane! This is just one more classic example of a selfish generation who doesn't want to take responsibility for their own actions - they want it all but they don't want to work for it - they feel entitled to it all and believe we should just serve it up to them on a silver platter. What a bunch of morons!
