    THE FALLOUT


    Operation Varsity has exposed at least 40 wealthy parents in the biggest college cheating scandal in U.S. history. Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin are among the parents who paid a college prep company hundreds of thousands of dollars to help their children cheat their way into elite schools. Loughlin’s daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella, apparently posed for pictures with rowing machines so that the prep company could get them rowing scholarships, even though (you guessed it) neither of them row. Huffman was released on $250k bond on Tuesday and Loughlin turned herself in on Wednesday and was released on $1 million bond. By last night, Loughlin had lost her deal with the Hallmark channel, and her daughter, Olivia Jade, was dropped by Sephora. Meanwhile, a $500-billion civil lawsuit was filed by a parent in San Francisco against the group caught up in the alleged scandal.
     
  3. The thing that made me laugh was the transcripts where one of the parents was infuriated that his son's non-existent athletic record was being checked up on by the University that he was applying for. Guy starts going off about "invasion of privacy" because he's getting verified.

    I really want to know who that fuckstick is.

    Kinda rich but not wealthy? This is just a page ripped from the old, “What to do if you can’t afford to donate a library, arena or science-wing” playbook. Lol!

    ♜ "Talent is universal, even if opportunity is not"
    "Much of the news of the last week has focused on wealthy families buying access to great universities ... There is no question that America is a tilted playing field that gives wealthy children huge advantages," the NY Times' Nicholas Kristof writes:

    • "So we should all grin along with Tanitoluwa Adewumi, the newly crowned chess champion for kindergarten through third grade. He went undefeated at the [New York] state tournament last weekend, outwitting children from elite private schools with private chess tutors."
    • "Tani is a reminder that refugees enrich this nation — and that talent is universal, even if opportunity is not. Back in Nigeria, his parents say, his brilliance at chess would never have had an outlet."
    Worthy of your time.
