USA Today - Illnesses or Injury Can Ruin Student Loan Debtors

I wrote this article in June for USA Today. Since there are so many new followers here, I thought I'd repost it - the piece is called "Illness or injury can cause 'ruinous' consequences for those with student loan debt." These stories remind me of why I continue to fight on behalf of the indentured educated class. We deserve a better world. We don't deserve this sort of punishment.
