The City University of New York is showing a lot more class than aristocratic Yale. It is offering ($link) a scholarship to an Iraqi blogger to attend its Graduate Journalism school.
City University has a glorious history of providing the opportunty for striving immigarnts and others in the past to find their own American dreams. CUNY beats Yale's approach to admitting foreign students, and is a slap in the face for all the colleges and universities that refused to take Afghan women into their ranks of students.
Another startling contrast is to the gang of Vietnam—era journalists who recently came together to work to get the son of a South Vietnamese traitor and Viet Cong spy (responsible for the deaths of many Americans and South Vietnamese) admitted into journalism school here in America (they also are paying for his tuition).
