I hear and read all the fuss and feathers about the rich folks buying their children’s way into colleges and universities all over the U.S. What I don’t hear is how the students are doing.
Before it came out that they got there through false pretenses, were the young folks getting grades of A and B or C, D, and F? If they were getting good grades it seems as if the entrance requirements are messed up. If they were failing then they were on their way to expulsion and perhaps Mom and/or Dad learned something.
All folks, even the dumb ones, must realize that the more money one has the more privileges one can enjoy. A person with a family making minimum wage can’t vacation in Tahiti. Someone, I don’t remember who, once told me that if all the personal wealth in the United States was evenly distributed to everyone that within one or maybe two generations it would be concentrated in 8 or 10 families. Figure it out. We can’t all drive a Lexus.
