RENT SEEKING. The latest newsletter from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni cited a Center for Responsive Politics report on individual contributions, by university affiliation, to individual candidates and political action committees, by party affiliation. (The Donks get about 2/3 of the money).

One participant stands out. In third place is Apollo Group, better known as the parent company of The University of Phoenix (motto: Somebody else's research is good enough for us), and apparently politically savvy enough to encourage contributions to political action committees.

The U.S. Senate recently held hearings on intellectual diversity in universities. Anne Neal of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni testified.
