In the NYT coverage the guy who was organizing the scheme identified it as a "side door" separate from the "back door" of making large contributions to the school of choice, which nominally does not guarantee acceptance.

What about "I did build that" as a mantra from the corporate elite, and the truism that status accrues to them meritocratically? Can we drop that yet?

    Bean launched a war by saying:
