Free online courses are great but you know the rich and greedy corporations that run this country wouldn't allow "free" anything to last long.

Anyhow, according to this article, free online courses are illegal in MN (go figure!).

OK, I'll admit it... I'm a railroad nut...

Ever wanted to be on a train from Moscow to Vladivostok watching the countryside?

It took less than two days for the issue to be addressed. As a native Minnesotan and long-time resident, this story attracted my attention.

Minnesota Decides Not to Suck After All, Legalizes Free Online College Courses - Hit & Run : Reason.com

There's a reason I tend to hold both the Twin Cities and the State of Minnesota up to the folks in my current City/State of residence as a good example of reasonable/functional government, at least in the general case, and this demonstrates that fairly well, IMO.
