    that quote doesn't work for me at all. it's a mashup of bad metaphors. I get the lazy reference to smoking crack, but the Adderall crash of Middlebury?

    That's some expensive bong water at Denison, whatever the hell that's even supposed to mean.

    "My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty."

    Felicity Huffman issues apology over college admissions case - CNN

    She either paid someone to take her daughter's test or, as alternatively reported, got a proctor to correct the test her daughter took. If her daughter didn't know, she is too stupid to be in college.

    The hubris knows no limits. They should have taken the plea deal because now they're gonna get the business end.

    I still can't believe these idiots paid $500,000 to get their kids until college -- when their kids didn't want or need to go.

    Or... to be fair... she completely tuned out while her Mom was explaining something really really boring and dumb when she wanted to be out with her friends.

    In the daughter's defense, if she took the test, handed it in and the proctor inflated her score by 30-40 points she would have no way of knowing. My verbal score increased by 60 points the second time I took the SATs and I can't tell you why I got more answers right.

    Now, if she got a 780 or something, yes, she should have been suspicious. But it would be hard to differentiate between a 560 and a 600. Of course, if someone took the test for her, all bets are off.

    It always bugs me when people equate wealth with common sense or work ethic.

    I'm sorry for shouting. I'll even denounce myself 17.GRONK percent.
