$1.00 in 1983 is $2.39 today.

Candy bars were but a nickel until around 1970. I think the going rate now is 15x that.

That seems about right. A dollar in '70 became a dime in the early '80s, and since then it's been reduced to about a nickle compared to '70, the point at which time inflation really took off.

With more than 20,000 flight hours logged you'd think they'd focus on real issues.

That article on "7 things..." was mainly idiocy.

Oh come on. The point is beyond obvious. No one is answering the question with a number because it is so obvious. I'll be explicit when someone comes up with the numerical answer.

I hear ya'...the average BMI for poor kids on assistance could be 35 and these clowns would still be trying to shovel food at them...

This sort of arrogance and incompetence is hardly limited to the DEA. It's the modus operandi for most of the federal government.

The thing is - there have always been shadow classes available - at every University. And kids (athletes and otherwise) look for the Rocks for Jocks type classes to puff up the GPA when they can. But, a whole freaking Faux Major?!? And ten players on a team of 15 in it?!?

At West Point the jocks take the same classes as everyone else, or at least they did in the early '80s. They did get to sleep in for Saturday morning inspections when their sport was in season.

Now you tell me. Not 20% ago when it wouldn't have hurt so much?
