Right? I keep coming back to that – this one “massive” scandal is less than the proverbial tip of the rotten iceberg.

I can’t help but think that figure is just the tip of the iceberg - the clients of just one fixer who got caught. I’m sure the children of all those parents who paid shady tutoring, college test prep, and related services should be sweating, too. However, I doubt it for the same reason you mentioned. Privilege is one hellava drug.

Kushner paid only $2.5M to jump the line at Harvard? That’s really cheap. It takes $1M to get into the 92nd St Y, a New York preschool:

I’m sensing an incipient outbreak of affluenza, a veritable epidemic about to break upon us.

I wonder if any of them have graduated yet - has this been going on long enough for that? If so … are their degrees forfeit, or do they get to keep those particular proceeds of crime?
