1) CBC is one of the best CC's is the state.

2) Summer's are suppose to hot.

3) They are always "testing" around town, besides no one gets alive anyway.

Unsupported statement. Kindly demonstrate proof. I think, based on my wife's experiences there, that it is more likely one of the worst than one of the best.

That's here say. Your going off what someone else says ("your wife's experiences") and the WSU branch campus is an excellent school as well.

Yours is as much 'here say' as anyone else's, and no more or less valid than my wife's. Furthermore, if you learned your orthography at either school, you're making a tragic advertisement for its standards.

Thanks for supporting my original point, though I am sure that was not your intention.

Heresay is stating what someone else said - information gathered by you from your wife concerning CBC of which YOU had no direct experience ("he said she said").

I hope I'm not the only one who's enjoying the irony of this.

In any case, it's perfectly valid for me to go by my wife's impressions, and you still offer no comparative studies to prove your point, so your impressions are no more or less valid than anyone else's (however inadvertently revealing they happen to be). Just repeating that you think they are excellent schools does not make them so, especially if you have never attended any others and can offer no objective evidence. A good school would have taught you the value of this.

Does your wife do all your thinking/views/opinions for you.?. I'm speaking by experience at both colleges, your putting them down becuase your wife didn't like CBC. If you went to CBC and you didn't like it, that's one thing and would be a valid opinion. To put down something you haven't experienced is another.

I was closely involved with my wife's experiences at CBC, so my opinion is perfectly valid. Furthermore, I happen to respect my wife's opinions in general, and I should in this case in particular, because (evidently) unlike you, she and I have attended educational institutions outside the Tri-Cities.

But I'm not just basing it on what I saw my wife go through. I'm basing it on the opinions of a lot of educated people I know, people with valid grounds for their views. Most of them say the same thing: it's mediocre.

You still provide no comparative data to support your statements, nor any evidence that you have personal comparative experience. You're just parroting boosterism based on your own narrow perspective. Furthermore, you have a personal ax to grind, because if CBC is mediocre than that suggests that your own education was mediocre. So you don't even have a firm claim to objectivity.
