In an interview with “Good Morning Minnesota” on July 9, Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty was describing his conversation with “The Daily Show” host Jon Stewart on June 10 about an “iCollege.”  His idea of an “iCollege” was that a student could pull up their college courses on an iPhone or iPad for the low price of $199.  While describing the benefits of online college courses, he menti ...
