References List of Bookmarks Just before the Labor Day weekend, a front page New York Times story broke the news of the largest cheating scandal in Harvard University history, in which nearly half the students taking a Government course on the role of Congress had plagiarized or otherwise illegally collaborated on their final exam. In the last generation or two, the funnel of opportunity in American society has drastically narrowed, with a greater and greater proportion of our financial, media, business, and political elites being drawn from a relatively small number of our leading universities, together with their professional schools. Indeed, the early success of Facebook was largely due to the powerful imprimatur it enjoyed from its exclusive availability first only at Harvard and later restricted to just the Ivy League. The claim that attendance at an Ivy League or other elite university provides a substantial advantage over similarly talented individuals has been disputed by the recent research of Stacy Dale and Alan B.

But because the review was published before the Chicago Tribune began digitizing and archiving its articles online, there was no direct Web link to the review itself — only citations of it.
Turns out the review was very short — what I had thought from reading the citations in the online articles were just short quotes from it was in fact the entirety of the review.
But it was accompanied by a photo of Obama, standing by his statement. Just a few weeks before this review was published in the Chicago Tribune, Obama and Ayers appeared together on a panel about juvenile justice organized by Michelle Obama on November 20, We have to ask other questions: How did he get the gun?
Where did it come from? The event is free and open to the public. Ayers will be joined by Sen. Barack Obama, Senior Lecturer in the Law School, who is working to combat legislation that would put more juvenile offenders into the adult system; Randolph Stone, Director of the Mandel Legal Aid Clinic; Alex Correa, a reformed juvenile offender who spent seven years in Cook County Temporary Detention Center; Frank Tobin, a former priest and teacher at the Detention Center who helped Correa; and Willy Baldwin, who grew up in public housing and is currently a teacher at the Detention Center.
On page 82 of the book itself, Ayers mentions Obama.
This shows the entirety of page 5 of the Chicago Review book section on December 21, Hi-res version of this photo here. This shows the date and page number at the top of the page, confirming it really is from the Chicago Tribune on December 21, Another unhinged racist attack.
Zombie scores another direct hit with this one! So much the LSM is willfully ignoring!
Congratulations on your sleuthing — a responsibility the MSM has totally abdicated. Unless they are busy looking into the lives of private citizen plumbers.
Anyone want to guess the odds on whether Ayers wrote the review himself or not? Writing a tiny blurb of a review does not, in any way, mean that you support the actions of the author.
Ayers was active when Obama was 8 years old. Charges against Ayers were dropped 20 years ago. This is a non-issue, distracting us from the real issues.
And media objectivity died. Bill Ayers was there too, and so to the Weatherman.
Two police officers and a Brinks guard were ambushed and murdered. The muslim thug president of Kenya, and African travel partner of Obama and his supposedly first cousin is Raila Odinga.
Maybe Columbia is a really really big school, with lots and lots of Black Nationalists and Weather Underground types there at the time. Obama said he lived off campus, spent his time jogging or in the library. Excellent research and I agree with your opinions!

As a direct consequence, the war over college admissions has become astonishingly fierce, with many middle- or upper-middle class families investing quantities of time and money that would have seemed unimaginable a generation or more ago, leading to an all-against-all arms race that immiserates the student and exhausts the parents.
Getting people to attend to learning is in fact probably the major challenge in OL in general (Argyris ; Von Krogh et al ); it is certainly the major KM and OL issue in projects. This is the area where PROBOL is now focusing.
