People Talk About Institutions

OF HIGHER LEARNING owing their graduates rebates, if not full refunds, for misrepresentation of the value of a sheepskin, let alone the merchantability of their education itself. And they’re not wrong.

But me, being all contrapuntal and stuff, I wonder how long it’s going to take Harvard (and Columbia) to demand the President stop representing himself as a graduate — that he’s devaluing their brands, as it were. I mean, what smartest person in the room would pull some of the boners he has?

Examples? You want examples? Have you not been paying attention for the last three years?
