And now for smething completely different

I'm not sure if this doesn't belong in the pathetic catagory, GenX/slacker catagory, or sortta sublminimally sly catagory.

There's this guy up at UW-Whitewater who's in his 11th year at school(college). When I first read it, I thought 'yep, typical lazy kid', then I read farther down.

Disregarding the fact that he's got over $30,000 of student loans, and a 'slacker fee' he's being lauded for "paying his way" by his (liberal sounding) mother who also has this to say about her Johnny:
Shelle Lechner of Pewaukee, a convenience store manager, said she likes that her son has used his college time to pursue his dreams, including a songwriting career. He has self-financed five acoustic-guitar CDs and performs widely. That means he can't sell them, right?

"He's an adult. He's paying for college himself. I don't have a right to tell him to get a job," she said. "He's doing what he wants to do, and he's happy. I couldn't ask for a better kid."

Afeter going throught the entire article, we find the main reason he's still in college:
Sophomore Jenny Zinda, 20, hangs out with Lechner and said she doesn't think of him as old. Zinda was in fourth grade when Lechner was a college freshman.

"Some girls say it's weird that he's still here, but the bottom line is they all want him," Zinda said. "Everyone knows him and there's a certain excitability about being friends with and dating Johnny Lechner." - - - yep, p*ssy!
