It must have been a very impressive SAT score

Fourth grade graduate and former Taliban official Sayed Rahmatullah Hashemi's, I mean. The one who's now attending Yale. That one. This is probably old news for you but as The Times didn't find it newsworthy, I only read about it last week in the April New Criterion. Apparently some of the press did give it a mention, the WSJ for instance, and some storm clouds gathered in the blogosphere. But your servant, two months late and a dollar short, missed it entirely. Until now. So let it be recorded that I am now, nunc pro tunc, officially astonished. (If not outraged; it is, well, Yale, after all. Cf. WFB's treatise of fifty some years ago.)
