It takes a moment after waking before I remember I’m in Orange Beach, Alabama. I usually sleep harder when visiting the beach, and this night seemed like all the rest.

Pete was my best friend, and just about the coolest things we’d ever seen were vending machines that served hot food and Cokes in cups.

Ray’s Take: If you Google the words “student loan crisis,” millions of hits should convince you that this is a very hot topic.

While this is slightly lower than the previous report, it’s still not good. And the rate doesn't include borrowers who have been able to defer payments. Additionally, the most recent graduates will face the highest costs and will be emerging into what continues to be a very poor job market. We have every reason to believe that defaults are not only understated, but they will increase.

Every place has a food.

Canada has poutine. Sure, the country probably has a few other things, too. But Canada has poutine.
