The New York Post has picked up a story in which Brian Baxter, who graduated from Columbia in 1990, is suing the University, claiming he’s being subjected to “modern-day slavery” in the form of high student loan rates. Citibank—Columbia’s partner in crime and “preferred lender”—is also involved in the suit.
Baxter, who likens himself to a “mouse on a treadmill”—which to Bwog’s understanding is not actually at all the same thing as a slave—is riling against the inflated rates of his student loan.
Columbia and Citibank—who are, just to clarify, the treadmills of the “mouse on the treadmill” analogy—could not be reached for comment, though one could presumably characterize their retorts as something along the lines of: “Let them eat cheese.”
