Two Unrelated Stories About West Point

In the first, PC Magazine lists the US Military Academy as #11 on its list of Top Wired Colleges.

And the Royal Military College in Canada has been using "non-traditional students" in its hockey games, which I think is a polite way of saying they cheat. The West Point-RMC hockey game, the oldest continuous international sports rivalry, is now about to end after 80 years.

I read this article when it was published with great interest as my nphew and godson was applying to the Academy. He has since been accepted and will enter the Class of 2011 in July. I could not be prouder of him. I find it astonishing that grown adults would look unfavorably on what these kids have to do to be accepted. I would gladly be the parent of any of them.
