And if he were a student?

Yet another plagiarism case. Not Opal Mehta, but a college president. Hamilton College had a similar case a few years ago. At Wesley College, however, things are a tad different.
The faculty can’t decide if it has confidence in President Miller, or not. How absurd. Apparently this isn’t the first time he’s “done it.” I’m all for giving the benefit of the doubt, but there is no doubt in this case. The unfortunate reality of being in that sort of position is that you are held to a higher standard than, say, a student. You’re supposed to be setting an example (remember that whole Caesar’s wife thing?).
I shudder to think what this implies about standards at Wesley. And I question President Miller’s intelligence. After all these other cases, did he really think no one would catch him?
