"If you pay close attention, you'll notice that the New York Times is more or less a newspaper about getting your kids into an Ivy League school."

Since posting a link to a discussion of "Harvards of the South" the other day I have been chortling to myself about the pretension of it all, now this spot-on observation from the Village Voice has driven it home. As a graduate of the Harvard of the Genesee Valley I suppose I shouldn't snark; maybe the solution is to just call all institutions of higher learning "Harvards" instead of "colleges". A. could tell people she is an alum of the Harvard of Commonwealth Avenue. EGS and CLA could tell people they attended the Harvard of the Pioneer Valley. EGA got her MA from the Harvard of Central Indiana, and CLA is applying to the Harvard of Wisconsin Catholic universities.
