Tit for Tat in the Education/Entertainment Sphere
My daughter is a huge Stephen Colbert fan -- despite the fact he did not even bother to respond to her heartfelt request for a summer internship opportunity. She has forgiven him, I have not. And apparently some people at MIT aren't in a forgiving mood either. In a recent interview Colbert did with an education expert, MIT was mentioned. Colbert scoffed, calling it a "tech school" and the "Harvard of DeVrys," that chain of for-profit schools. So, MIT's dean of admissions did a take-off on Colbert. For a little weekend amusement, take a look. Comedians, admissions officers -- gee, do they share some DNA?
