    A corridor of Carolinas Medical Center – Main’s Emergency Room is roped off on the first floor near the entrance. A security guard is posted outside to prevent anyone from crossing the line. CMC officials said a patient is being tested, but a spokesman would not specify what they are testing the patient for. Wednesday morning, the issue at CMC was not impacting Medic services, according to officials. The hospital is taking “all normal precautions,” according to officials. The Centers for Disease Control said it has not been contacted.

    City Journal ^ | 24 May 2012 | Charles C. Johnson
    Claremont McKenna College, a private liberal arts college 60 miles east of Los Angeles, drew national attention earlier this year when its dean of admissions, Richard Vos, was caught deliberately misreporting the SAT scores that students had achieved before attending CMC. VosÂ’s goal was to reach the coveted 1400 SAT average for highly selective liberal arts colleges. He resigned soon after the scandal emerged in January, but not before touching off a debate about the lengths to which colleges will go to boost their rankings. Journalists and education-policy experts lectured about the corrupting effect of U.S. News and World ReportÂ’s...

    The Times-Tribune (Scranton PA) ^ | 12/22/09 | SARAH HOFIUS HALL
    The $100 million was too good to be true. On Sunday, The New York Times reported Scranton's Commonwealth Medical College would likely be the recipient of a $100 million earmark in the Senate health care bill. When contacted by a New York Times reporter, Robert D'Alessandri, M.D., the school's dean and president, said such a windfall was news to him. Dr. D'Alessandri told the reporter he doubted the money was for the state's newest medical school - but anything was possible. On Monday, The Associated Press ended the speculation, reporting that the money had been put in the bill at...

    What Did Hate-Crime Hoaxer Dunn Cost the Colleges?  That's the big question the judge asked at her sentencing, which was postponed to December 15, following a psychiatric evaluation of the hate-crimes hoaxer. Calling Claremont McKenna College professor Dunn a "bald-faced liar," Judge Horan stated: '"Ms. Dunn doesn't have to stand up and say she did it," Judge Charles Horan said during Friday's hearing. "But it sure would help the court in deciding whether prison time is appropriate."' According to a reliable source, an alumnus of the Colleges who attended the hearing: 'The judge was disappointed--his word--that there was no one...

Ever since self-defacing teenager Tawana Brawley smeared feces all over herself, scrawled "KKK" and "nigger" on her skin, climbed into a trash bag, and blamed it on racist cops in New York, America has been victimized by wannabe victims -- warped publicity-seekers so desperate for attention that they'll fake the hate by any means necessary. Brawley (who now calls herself Maryam Muhammad) is all grown up. But her psychologically stunted heirs continue to soak up public sympathy and squander police resources.

    Claremont McKenna president Pamela Gann said the college will honor its agreement to pay for a rental car for Kerri Dunn so she can drive to work.

The vandalism came after a series of race-related incidents at the colleges over the past few months, including a cross-burning at Harvey Mudd College in January. The cross-burning, which also prompted rallies and demonstrations, was determined to have been the work of drunken students who claimed they did not realize that burning a cross had racial significance. Dunn has had a few minor...
