He wrote a series of comments about the reporter on his Twitter page and said...

    PREFACE HOW THIS BOOK CAME TO BE WRITTEN By Zygmund Dobbs In 1957 a Harvard alumni group asked this writer to initiate a study of leftist infiltration at Harvard University. Previous efforts to find a qualified Harvard alumnus for the task had proved unfruitful. This was a period when America was still in shock over scandals involving traitorous government officials in the service of the Stalinist terror apparatus. Disloyal Ivy leaguers had used the wealth and resources of the United States to undermine their own country. Incredibly, at the same time, they were able to betray over 600 million people...

The glitch comes at a time when the LSE is facing strong competition from several rivals and on a day...

    Former White House intern Monica Lewinsky is heading to Britain to study in a Masters in Psychology program at the prestigious London School of Economics. The curvy 32-year-old, who shocked the world when reports of her sex antics with former President Bill Clinton hit newsstands, completed her first degree in psychology in 1995 before she started work for the former U.S. leader. Although the program incurs a staggering $22,000 for non-European students, the fee shouldn't pose a problem for Lewinsky -- she reportedly commanded six-figure payouts for her revealing interviews after Clinton's autobiography was published last year.
