two local pittsburgh questions . . .
2. Why is WDUQ news referring to the public universities and colleges in Pennsylvania as "state owned" in the reports on tuition?? Does this mean something other than public? I may be paranoid, but I think "state owned" sounds a little threatening, (not to me, but the popular connotation, maybe) whereas public higher education is understood by most people to be a good and necessary thing . . . Or is there a perfectly valid reason for WDUQ news to be using a phrase that connotes dark, scary, soviet era breadlines?
