    I have a little question. I'm serious, I'm looking for the answer.

    In the movie "Scent of a Woman," Al Pacino says the following:

    "For student aid read crook."

    What did he mean? Or what do you think he meant?

    I mean, look. I never studied, nor do I plan to. I'm not a fan of being put in a class with 30 other people while somebody preaches. I just find something wrong with it. I hate waking up day in and day out because I have to go someplace, hate the obligation, hate waiting in lines. Anyway, but even I, someone that finds something wrong and in a way disrespectful about universities and colleges, consider financial aid to be a good thing. You can't pay, you get student aid, it allows you to go learn how to follow orders. Great.

    So what does this quote mean then?
