May 19, 1925: Malcolm X is born.
In 1960, LIFE magazine assigned Arnold, who died in January 2012 at the age of 99, to document the days and nights of Malcolm X, the controversial and intensely charismatic public face of the Nation of Islam. For nearly a year, she followed the thug-turned-devout Muslim and activist from Washington to New York to Chicago. (Eve Arnold—Magnum)
See Eve Arnold’s photographs of Malcolm X here.

Happy Birthday, Brother Malcolm.

The Paradox of College: The Rising Cost of Going (and Not Going!) to School

Have you heard about the dangerous, rising cost of not going to college? In the last 30 years, the typical college tuition has tripled.

In 2003, it was 230%. Over the last three decades, the cost of going to college has increased at nearly the exact same rate as the cost not going to college. How can the price of getting something and not getting something both rise at the same time? That is the paradox of college costs.

Because once a joke is made, you can only follow it through to its natural conclusion.

If you’re just getting caught up on today, this will suffice. 

When two trending topics collide, the outcome can be hilarious.
