Educational? Dan Gilmore points to a really infuriating article in the Scientific American about how universities are laughing all the way to the bank with their patents. Even while at college I got the sense that universities are ran more like businesses than centers of education. Well, if they're going to be reaping the benefits of patents then maybe they should be taxed like corporations.

However, I'm sure they'll just add that as another one in their Rolodex of excuses for hiking tuition every year. Let's not even start about all the federal funding, courtesy of the US tax payers, that they use for obscure research, and of course the construction of school buildings that they couldn't manage to fit into their already bloated budgets.
