Mr. Reynolds says...

I don't normally quote the scribblings of Glenn Reynolds, manager of Instapundit, mostly because I find that his blog is little more than a clearinghouse for links to other sites. But this snappy quote caught my attention:

You want to redistribute wealth? Spend your endowment to provide free tuition. You want to fight inequality? Start admitting applicants at random, without regard to SAT scores or grades.

This was in response to the news that many elite universities have entire centers devoted to the study of "inequality." See the relevant post here. Some people just don't get that hierarchy is woven into the fabric of the cosmos. Think I'm wrong? Try talking to someone stupid, for starters.
