Some thoughts don't require a lot of words . . .
On Monday I read email from a teenager asking if she
could work for ArmeniaNow to earn $500. It is the amount
her school is demanding she pay in bribes for her diploma
if she wants top grades. Any lesser amount and she won't
receive '5s', no matter how well she performs on exams.
She is an honor (an ironic description, yes?) student,
smart enough that she won a scholarship to study in
the United States.
