By Choire Sicha on Whitman College and the Decline of Economic Diversity

Oh, and WHAT a coincidence! Former Whitman president Tom Cronin is located at the same IP address. That is so remarkable. He is now a professor at Colorado College.

By Maura Johnston on That Big Study About How the Student Debt Nightmare Is in Your Head? It's Garbage

this is why 'data journalism' is the new 'objectivity' as far as being a complete scourge when it comes to, you know, journalism's ostensible job of getting the truth out there. you don't have to be *correct*—you just have to have the illusion of being correct, and numbers conveniently provide that because oh isn't math just infallible?

ugh ugh UGH. i hated 'a new study' bullshit when it was telling me incorrect things about pop music, but shit like this is even more corrosive.

I find it easy to believe these conclusions apply to most people in and around the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
