You know, this little parable always bothered me because it's so black and white. It never mentions her friend Sarah, who also has no extracurricular life (and who she sees more of these days because she is always at the library with her and works the same job.) Yet, despite all her hard work, Sarah's still only got a 2.0 GPA. Nor does it mention Dick, the class clown, who gets a 3.5 GPA because his professors are constantly reminded by the administration that his father is a major contributor to the universisty and has promised a new gymnasium this year if Dick graduates in the upper half of his class.

How would RepDad and DemDaughter feel about them?
