    93-Year-Old Enrolls In College

    Along with the throngs of students starting classes at Humboldt State University is Marion Koffords, but at age 93, she stands out a bit on campus.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Shoot, I'll be happy if I can still walk (or am even alive) at 93!! She's amazing.

    I'm toying with the idea of going back for another degree, but keep thinking that at in my mid 40's, I'm way too old. But then, this is not for a weekend seminar, either.

    Has anyone gone back to school and started out in an entirely different career once 'the bloom was off the rose'??
