Strong opinions, weakly held

Define irony

The MIT Dean of Admissions who urged institutions to focus on factors other than lists of accomplishments when choosing which students to admit resigned today after 28 years at the university for lying on her résumé. Her success in spite of not having the credentials she claimed bears out her theory, as does the fact that she probably would not have gotten her job 28 years ago had she not faked her accomplishments.

  1. Well, it’s sad but in the Academic world you just can’t fib on stuff like diplomas. That said, MIT should have done a better job of checking her out when she applied for the job — instead of waiting 28 years.
