Nice of the Chicago Tribune to publish this. They are finally catching up. Kids are cheating on standardized tests through extended time. Most of them are wealthy and white. I have known this has gone on for a while now. If colleges would end acceptance by race, gaming the standardized tests would drop. That, and other incentives change the market for testing. Test anxiety is bullshit. Who wasn’t anxious and nervous before a test?
Why are comedians so neutered when it comes to telling jokes about Obama? Leno, Letterman, O’Brien, Kimmell are all wimps. They couldn’t carry Johnny Carson’s jockstrap. He would have been all over Obama. Carson was personal friends with Reagan and didn’t hold back for goodness sake.

They will steal it if they can. I still can’t believe they didn’t steal it in 2000. Neither can they.

Hope you have a great Sunday.
