It is indeed true that the majority of today's students are beginning to acknowledge and fear the existence of a spiraling recession. However, American students are not reacting strongly enough to the impending crisis ahead of them. Gordon, in his editorial "College Freshmen Focused on Jobs," gives "optimistic" statistics such as "those who said they spent some time 'partying' every week during high school declined from 69.7% to 65.3%." Although the editorial argues that this decrease of 4.4% is ground-breaking, 65.3% is still a HUGE number. Students should be studying…like students in Asia or other countries that do not have such a luxurious life as Americans.  -Timothy Liu, El Segundo
