| remember when.
| Well, the is a case in the news now. Francis Lawrence, president of
| Rutgers university, said that SAT scores were unfair because black
| students lacked the genetic and hereditary background needed to score
| high on them.
| He's taken it back, he said he mispoke, he apoligized, but the clamor
| for his firing still goes on. He is under a great deal of political
| pressure to quit or be fired. ...

And I assume, either from your lack of a proper education or your
inability to utilize a *spell-checker*, that you are placing yourself in
the same bin as Lawrence's evolutionary illiterate?

Just a thought.
