Note to Lawrence O'Donnell 1

Dude, while I've generally agreed with you on this whole Donald Trump fiasco; the fact that Mr. Trump has acted disgracefully and that he is undoubtedly lying (this whole thing about him conducting an investigation is total BS), I have to tell you here, you yourself may have stepped over the line last night................................................................................................Yeah, I'm referring to your insinuation that Mr. Trump is acting out of academic jealousy, that Mr. Trump indeed may have applied to the President's alma maters (Columbia and Harvard) and that he was rejected by them. Apart from your having presented absolutely zero evidence for this "theory", you've also taken an absolutely unwarranted dig at the University of Pennsylvania. Perhaps you didn't know this, Mr. O'Donnell, but the University of Pennsylvania, as well as its law school, have consistently been ranked in the top 5-10 in the United States. AND, the Wharton School of Business, that part of Penn in which Mr. Trump attended, was recently ranked by U.S. News and World Report as the NUMBER ONE undergraduate business school in the country (their graduate program was #3).....................................................................................................Look, Mr. O'Donnell, I get it. After everything that Mr. Trump has done, it really is kind of hard to say that he himself is owed any sort of apology. But, I do think that you owe the University of Pennsylvania and it's many fine graduates (go to Wikipedia and scroll down to notable alumni - I think that you'll be impressed) a big apology. As is almost always the case with folks like you (i.e., partisan talking heads), you've taken it perhaps a bit too far.

I take it you went to UoP Will?

You should visit my wonderful Democracy Central to get a totally unbiased take on the Trump/Birther situation.

Yes. Visit my Democracy Central. And after that you should visit Whirling Dervish's Sleeping With The Devil. Then come back and visit my Democracy Central again. And again. And again...

I have Penn on my make believe resume, Truth - right along with Amherst and Carnegie Mellon.

Amherst - ranked by U.S. News and World Report as the second best liberal arts college in America (the only rub being that arch-rival, Williams, is #1).

Although I'm an alumnist of John Wood Community College, I feel more a member of Truman St. because I paid it far more for my daughter's college than I paid JWCC.

I, too, am a product of the state university system; Central (CT) and Southern (CT)..............Yes, we do have a Western and an Eastern, too.

You guys got ripped off in 1989. They should have never called that foul at the end of the game. They basically handed the win to Michigan.
