Crusin' 'round the 'net in my six four...

A moment away from griping about education.

For all you media fans out there, police in Colorado Springs have linked gangsta rap to a rise in crime. There are so many ways to run with this. I suppose I'd like to know what their method of study is. I bet if we checked, we'd find there was also an increase in the number of country music radio stations there.

Seriously, folks, I've tried shooting a Tupac cd at people, and nothing happens. And try as he might, even Toby Keith hasn't figured out how to put actual bullets into one of his songs. Chris Rock has it right - want to stop gun violence? Charge more for bullets.

if you feel like bringing it all back home (griping about education + gangsta rap), check out this piece from Inside Higher Ed. the essay itself is good for a laugh, but scroll down and check out the comments, which is where things really get interesting...

Oh, man. Reading those comments tops my thoughts on trying to study whether there is a rise in white-collar crime every time the Beastie Boys put out a new album.

Priceless.
