Legacies

<p>Ack, I hate this damn euphenism for what in reality is no more benign than a political favor. Legacy admissions policies are as discriminatory as it gets; I just can't believe it's so explicitly condoned.</p>

<p>Do these same people who list half their family as Penn alumni on their application also list their lawyer daddy on their job applications, or lobby for more lenient grading from a teacher because they are the best friend of that teacher's kid? I hope I'm sounding logical. Legacies are ridiculous and ought to be done away with.</p>

<p>All in favor say, "People like Martin Luther King Jr. have their own holidays for a reason." :D</p>
