$500 Billion Lawsuit Filed Against Named Colleges in Admissions Scandal

Yes, that is billion with a ‘b.’ Here is the story. I had originally wanted to write a big piece on it but that terrible New Zealand white terrorist attack took all my attention this weekend.

Thanks for Contributing to the Music Post
