The discussion of membership costs for STC reminds me
of the various state governments' views of the cost
of their universities and colleges. They look at them as
straightforward expenses.

I cannot afford a Rolls Royce or a Lexus. But suppose by
buying a Lexus I could get reliable transportation *and*
get a better job. Even if I'm on a Toyota budget, I'd work
awfully hard to find a way to get that Lexus.

Likewise, states and their taxpayers ought to look at
schools as *investments* rather than expenses.

I've always looked at STC membership as an investment.
If it were merely an expense, I would have dropped it
long ago.
