One other course of action you may try, if I'm seeing that you're a servicemember in ANY capacity, is to try to levy the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act to convince your current card to lower the rate. Or, if you aren't still connected to the service, you can explore transferring your balance over to a USAA account. USAA would never conduct business like that.
NorCal, I can't offer any help with the IEP, other than to encourage you not to sign it until you're comfortable with its contents. You should be glad that you were able to catch this early. My daughter has Asperger's and we did not catch it until much later, and then due to moving often (thanks Army) we weren't able to get her a final diagnosis through the military medical system until the age of 13. The fact that you have begun to take action now is commendable. It will help your son, and will keep you from making the mistakes in how you handle him, unlike some of the ones we made. If you want a cute book to show your son when he is of age, take a look at "All Cats Have Asperger's." It was instrumental in us communicating with our daughter when the time came.
Had to sign in simply to up its this one, but I promise, no lolly gagging. Well played sir!

But this goes back to the "At OSU accomplishments vs other/post-OSU accomplishments" question.
If you have any interest in Fantasy, the "Wheel of Time" series by Robert Jordan is amazing. It's a 14 book series, I just finished reading it the second time.
Another set that is very good is "The Sword of Truth" series by Terry Goodkind. He's a scientologist, and occasionally some of the philosophy shines through, but it's rare enough that I never got irritated by it.
Of course, there's always the Harry Potter series, actually all very good reads.

Never fear you "sky is falling" Buckeye fans, the most common reason for people to get a torn meniscus is to stand up out of a chair. I have had more than one surgery to repair this fun and exciting condition, and it's not too hard to be back at 100% later in a couple months.
Shaq's highlight video might be my favorite of any so far. I love a sense of humor, music without a foul theme or language, and just a fun loving attitude. Combine that with solid play and being well spoken, and he looks like a great kid. Might be the first highlight video I watched all the way to the end in the last year and a half.
Dear Noah Spence, I just watched this great mid-season highlight compilation. Joey Bosa, the true freshman, was in on 3 plays, you showed up on 1. I know you're really happy for Joey and all, but I just had to ask... you cool with that? Time to do some work.
They actually do for a certain period of time. Their diets are strictly regulated because within a couple months of the season ending, they have to get their bodyfat back down within regulation. For a kid that age it's 20% or less, but the measurement system is seriously flawed. It is based off of measuring your neck and your waste and then doing a mathematical calculation where your height and weight is considered. I've seen guys with single digit bodyfat be told they were over at 22% because they had thick trunks (with 6 packs) and small necks.
Mike Mitchell's line has Munger's write up. Otherwise, outstanding summary! WhAt a sick class this is!
