Then, all four of the school's principles ran out to stop me. Then, about a hundred students came out, surrounded the principles, and began chanting "Bring it Down!". More students came out. The cops were called, and 4 bus-loads of riot porkers showed up. They drove us back in the building with tear gas and clubs. And we were herded into a gymnasium, where we were on 'lock-down' the rest of the day.

I've thought about that. And if I had any 'great fortune' to bequeath, I would buy up homes in posh, upscale neighborhoods, and turn them into homeless shelters, so as to drive down the neighbors' property values! I would also set up a scholarship fund exclusively for CLEP earners. CLEP stands for College Level Education Program, and was established in 1964, to reward the self-educated. You test out of standard freshman and sophomore level courses, for which the Federal government awards you college credits. I managed to earn 27 credits of my 200 total, through CLEP, and DANTES ( similar to CLEP). And I was disappointed to learn that there are no scholarships for the self-educated. I was also disappointed that many department heads and faculty members look down on CLEPpers. (They just hate it when they get students that know as much, or more than they do!).

Statistics published recently suggest 42% of US households have at least one gun. That's a lot of ...
davknight comments on May 6, 2019:
Actually, it's 25% of American households with guns. The more regulated guns become, the more expensive they are, and thus less affordable for the majority of folks. Britain began regulating gun ownership in 1903. Now, gun ownership there has become a luxury of the rich. The US began regulating guns in 1934. And gun ownership amongst poor and working class people has shrunk, while the wealthy have been hoarding guns. Your figures are about forty years out of date. Keep in mind, as of about 1975, 50% of American homes had an average of three firearms each. Nowadays, its 25% with an average of six firearms.If, as Mao stated,"Political power grows out the barrel of a gun", then 'gun control' means stripping the majority of people their political power. Not a smart thing to do. Especially in the Age of Trumplerism!

The Germans used to call the nineteenth-century the 'Age of the Three Karls'-- Clausewitz, Marx, and Darwin. All three of whom had a profound effect on twentieth-century thinking. The most amazing thing about Marx, is that he was such a prodigious writer. Yet, most of his critics have never actually read any appreciable number of his works. Or, as historian Charles Beard once pointed out: "For a man who spoke as many languages as he (Marx) did,and who held as many university degrees, he MUST have known at least SOMETHING".
