Quote of the day: Moral difference

Here's an astute observation from Charles Pierce:

The only moral difference between for-profit colleges and check-cashing shops is that the former usually are located in better neighborhoods.

The good news: For-profit colleges don't have corrupt athletic programs.

The bad news: They don't need to, since the whole operation hinges on bought-and-paid-for insiders who protect their racket.

Bonus quotes:
The difference between Washington under any president and Versailles under Louis XIV?

Long pants and fewer wigs.
The difference between the way the Village does business and the way things used to work in Russia under the Kremlin?

Better cars and Meet The Press.

Boy's on a roll. And it's a Saturday.
