FWIW, I agree that government meddling is not the way to "fix" the college tuition issues.

The point I was trying to make is that college is apparently very unique when it comes to inflationary pricing of its goods/services within our marketplace over the recent past.
1) I was trying to be condescending - just not to you. It was rhetorical and should have been condescending to anyone who thinks that government is the solution to college inflation, rather than the culprit. Mea Cupla anyway.

2) It isn't really that unique. You will find out of control inflation costs in nearly anything that has substantial government influence causing non-market related supply or demand artificial corrections. The housing bubble was one example I gave. Another is defense contract spending. There are many more.
