Morning Digestion – 3-14-19: BETO IN, SEZ “I’M BORN FOR THIS.” COLLEGE ADMISSION SCANDAL BECOMES ABOUT RACE AT NYT.

Do not miss the podcast this afternoon. I’ll play Beto’s announcement in which he talks to the FB camera saying nothing. He talks, you can hear him. But as usual he says nothing. And he has no positions. He waits till you say you’re for something and he says I’m for that too.

The college admissions scandal is taking a bunch of rich people down. Along with college coaches who got unqualified kids into major schools by pretending they were athletes. They were not. Also at least one of the kids knew she faked her way in.

The actress’ daughter who got in USC through mom’s cash heard the news that her actress mother was arrested while on spring break aboard the yacht of the President of the USC Board of Trustees.

And the NYT makes the scandal all about race. The black kids who didn’t get in to the big schools. Here’s a fearless prediction: bet there were lots of white kids who didn’t get in because rich mom&pop greased the skids for an unqualified kid.

  1. What baffles me more than Bobble-head BETO, is the following he has from prominent folks, i.e. doctors, lawyers, professors, architects, etc, here in Houston. Makes you wonder what the hell these “professionals” are drinking?

    PS: Love the new format JG, Thanks
