Вашингтонский Пост независимо переоткрыл анекдот "вот на эти три процента и живу":
Said the school board member of his results: “I won’t beat around the bush. The math section had 60 questions. I knew the answers to none of them, but managed to guess 10 out of the 60 correctly. On the reading test, I got 62%. In our system, that’s a ‘D,’ and would get me a mandatory assignment to a double block of reading instruction.

It seems to me something is seriously wrong. I have a bachelor of science degree, two masters degrees, and 15 credit hours toward a doctorate. I help oversee an organization with 22,000 employees and a $3 billion operations and capital budget, and am able to make sense of complex data related to those responsibilities....

В смежных новостях Фред скорбит о 1955 годе. Я -- нет, меня ни в каком виде не устраивает ни школа 1955 года (видимо, я учился именно в такой, как ему нравится), ни 2011-го. Тем не менее, рекомендую: все-таки, Фред.
