Today in “Not New News”

People are getting into college because of political connections!

*Yawn* and water is wet. Somehow, this is still making news. The governor of Illinois has convened a commission to look into admissions practices at University of Illinois’ three campuses. Although the commission is not empowered to fire anyone, at least two UofI trustees have resigned. Allegedly, the trustees greased the admission wheels for hundreds of “politically connected” students sponsored by donors, elected officials and trustees themselves.

While folks are out there calling for an end to affirmative action or so-called “reverse discrimination”, they’re noticeably silent when it comes to this type of preferential admission. For more, check out the story at the Wall Street Journal.
