Lady I-

Ok, I have to admit to another secret fantasy (the first being that in 25 years the tax laws will have changed so that no tax will be due) - I keep hoping that there will be enough of us in this boat (you know, rocking and beginning to sink) that our old friend the government will do something to help.

Maybe expand opportunities for loan forgiveness, something. As it is, we should finish off the student loans (on ICR) jut in time to collect social security.

Remember a few yeas back all the press about the "sandwich generation" - middle age adults rasining their children and having to care for their elderly parents? We're gonna be in that situation, but with such student loans that we won't have the resources to pay for our parent's care.
