I purposely haven’t written yet about the college cheating scheme that landed actresses Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman and a bunch of others in hot water because I kind of understand.
When you have kids, you want them to succeed no matter how lazy and stupid they may be. After all, they may be paying your bills someday — especially if you are aging actors who are finding it hard to get roles. So you need your kids to get a good job.
So you cough up $200,000 to $6.5 million to bribe someone to get your kids into a premier college under false pretenses.
I get it, but it’s very wrong. And the bribers are now paying the consequences — throw them in the gulag.
But what about the people who are even richer than these folks and who get special treatment for their kids and grandkids because they’ve donated lots more money to colleges and universities?
Why is it right to get special treatment if you donate $20 million to put up a student center and not get anything for a mere $200,000.
True, one bribe is going to a tennis coach who falsified your clumsy kid’s athletic abilities and the other directly to the college. But, still, they are both bribes!
And what about something called “legacies”?
Simply put, that’s a student who got into a college because his family has ties to the school. Usually Mom or Dad went there.
Let’s be real: The hope of the college is that placing these legacies in their classrooms will result in large donations from the parents.
So, my point: What’s the price at which it is all right to bribe a college? Is it paying $20 million for a building after your legacy son gets into the school? Clearly, $200,000 isn’t enough, or the celebrities who paid that much wouldn’t be involved in a scandal right now.
