We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Does this mean the media is finally waking up to the cosy relationship betweeen the communists and environmental groups (not to mention labor unions and other left leaning organizations)? The communist have been openly using left wing opposition groups to interfere with our government and our citizens since the 20's. They have actively worked to harm our economy and thwart freedom and capitalism everywhere and the "useful idiots" of the left have been front and center. Somehow the media has always had a blind spot to this.
Well it wasn't international news having come from the Harvard Crimson and the Weekly Standard, but I'll take your point.
I think it's significant for a number of reasons:
Harvard is considered the gold standard of universities. If their grades are bogus, what might that say about other ivy league colleges or even state colleges and the US university system as a whole? UNC Chapel Hill (another well respected university) has been caught graduating athletes who could barely read.
Harvard is one of the centers of leftist intellectualism where the "best and brightest" come from. If that everybody gets an 'A' regardless of the quality of the work they do, how can its students be considered to be the best or brightest? What might that say about the intellectual quality of those "best and brightest".
Harvard is obviously run by a bunch of leftists. What does that say about the manner and philosophy of management? These administrators are allowing the devaluation of the degrees they confer while charging confiscatory tuition.
What does all that say about the future of Harvard as the "gold standard"? How long will employers (other than Mummy and Daddy) pay for a Harvard educated graduate? If the job market for Harvard grads sags, that could tarnish the patina of Harvard.
Finally, it shines a light on the education situation as a whole in the US.
Re Hillary Clinton being fed up with 'whiny women', I am reminded of a quote (which I cannot source on Google) from a relative of Queen Mary (consort of George V) during WW I to the effect that - when complaining about visiting too many veterans hospitals or similar institutes - the compalinee was told something to the effect of "we are never tired and we ALWAYS love hospitals". Come to think of it, that's how the Royals operate now, to the benefit of the visitees.
