There's nothing illegal that he's done. Odd, yes, but, not a huge deal.
I'm of the same opinion. I mean, who cares, really? The guy and the university just come off as looking like either a.) blithering unaware idiots, or b.) deceiving liar idiots.
But who got hurt and what law got broken? Nobody got killed and nobody got robbed (I think). The media is just mad because they got totally duped so now they are going to pile on like you've never seen before.
But its just a tawdry story that doesn't affect any of us, really. People lied and did stupid things. Gosh, whoda thunk it? Besides all the wasted time at the water cooler talking about this, that is.
Who cares? Bah. There are bigger problems that deserve some time and discussion and thought. This doesn't.
