Tom Hanks: When I Said Mormons Were ‘Un-American’ What I Meant to Say Was They are the ‘Most American’

In an apology put out today by Tom Hank’s public relations firm he took back all the mean things he ever said about anybody. Ok, well, not exactly.

Is the University of California about to destroy its own standards?

UPDATE: Soros and Ayres behind the group pushing the destruction of UC’s standards It would seem so as the University of California Board of Regents is proposing the elimination of the SAT subject test as an admissions requirement. The SAT subject tests asses how well a student performs in 20 different subjects ranging from advanced mathematics to language skills. This part of the SATs have become an important part of admissions at nearly all American colleges and universities. In fact, the Dean of admissions for Harvard has said that subject tests are “Better predictors than either high school grades or
