Harvard to End Early Admissions

The Ivy League university said the program disadvantages poor and minority students, as richer students tend to take advantage of the early admissions opportunity.
Why should you care? Because Harvard is like The New York Times; it sets the agenda for others. Look for other schools to follow suit in this move to level the playing field.

Syrians Repel Attack on U.S. Embassy

Armed Islamic militants, believed to be members of an Al Qaeda-linked group, brazenly stormed the U.S. Embassy in Damascus. The attackers didn’t breach the walls, and three of them were killed, along with a Syrian counter-terror officer.

Army Gen.: Rumsfeld Muzzled Postwar Plans

Army Brig. Gen. Mark Scheid, who retires in three weeks, said the Defense secretary threatened in 2003 to “fire the next person” who talked about the need for postwar planning for Iraq. Rumsfeld apparently knew such talk would create the perception that the U.S. would be there a long time.

ABC’s Undocu-Drama Airs With Few Changes

In spite of (or perhaps because of) all the heat and negative publicity, ABC/Disney ran the first half of its fictionalized “The Path to 9/11” miniseries last night.
