ARTICLE OF THE WEEK

How can I say that, given that it's Monday?

I won't be blogging that much this week, and this is a very strong piece written in response to Teddy Kennedy's speech calling for all university's to disclose demographic data on the students admitted as "legacies" -- you know, the ones who bypassed the normal admissions process, like, well, all the Kennedys who got into Harvard despite their mediocrity.

Anyway, this writer makes the point that we shouldn't stop there. If Yale admits 375 (I'm making this up) rich white kids with average SATs as legacies, he would like for Yale to tell us how many rich African-American kids with average SATs were admitted (based on racial preferences).

That would be fair . . . right???
