6. Ah...another class distinction...

For now, I'm hanging with the starless.

At some point down the road, I'll made a decision as to whether I think the class distinctions are substantive enough that I'll stay with the starless as a "political" statement...

The fees are steep enough here to make them unaffordable to a number of people (although the impact is less at the moment since there was an option to make a smaller contribution that would cover the first year here). I much prefer the more-if-you-can/less-if-you-can't or contribution based model. In most settings where that is an option, I pay more because I can, and that's what makes the system work. If the differences are just fluff it bothers me less - and so far the only difference I am aware of that is substantive is jury duty weighting - and buying a spot on the jury, so to speak, doesn't sit well with me.
