Heavy Lifting - thoughts and web finds by an economist

From MSNBC.com comes a funny story about the crazy scholarships available for college kids. I liked this one:
"If you have been lucky enough to be born with the right last name, you can get a free ride on your college education," says Mark Kantrowitz, who runs the Web site Finaid.org.
Doesn't that violate an equal protection clause somewhere?
There are others, including scholarships from the Klingon Language Institute, and "a $1,500 scholarship from the American Sheep Industry for knitting and sewing an outfit with wool."
Can't afford to go to college, puleeze.
