    The life of an empty headed dolt .....

    Ms. Giannulli is one of a number of celebrity offspring who have lived out their teenage years on social media. In the video for which she was criticized, she described how the dissolution of a romantic relationship had been particularly difficult because people would send her tweets, Instagram posts and Snapchats of her ex with other young women.

    It is unclear whether Ms. Giannulli is aware of the accusations against her parents. She has not yet released a comment. Representatives for her family did not immediately reply when contacted.

    I wouldn't call it corruption since legacy admissions are part of their stated policy, not something done under the table.

    Negative on that for me.

    I lead such a naive existence

    There was a pretty good article on this scandal on Vox. In the article they quoted that the most privileged applicants, in terms of given breaks relative to their academic achievements, were 1) athletes, 2) legacies, and 3) racial minorities. They had numbers in the article, but the athletes were far ahead of legacies or minorities in terms of breaks given relative academics.

    I remember being in a bar in Vermont and some local drunk guy came up to me and some of my fellow collegians (from a nearby Ivy League College) and said: "You kids think because you go to that College that you're smarter than us." I said: "No, We go to that College because our Dads are richer than your dads." End of conversation.

    Meanwhile...

    William H. Macy is in deep shit....


    Huffman and Macy also seem to have abused the disability accommodations provisions of the SAT to facilitate their cheating—getting their daughter extra time on the test, and using that as a pretext to put in place the crooked proctor who fixed the test scores.
