Angelina’s boozing, Prince Charles’ divorce, and college entry cheat Lori Loughlin “tells all,” in this week’s dubious tabloids

Do tabloid editors even read what their reporters write? It’s hard to imagine, given the disconnect between headlines and the barely-detectable trace elements of facts contained in the stories beneath them. “Alex Trebek — Lung & Liver Surgery” reports the cover story of this week’s National Enquirer. But he’s had neither surgery according to the story on the inside pages about the beloved host of TV’s Jeopardy, who recently admitted having stage four pancreatic cancer. Is Trebek even poised to u...

How Rick Singer started the college admissions cheating scandal? It began with a reality TV audition

Rick Singer looks straight into the camera, auditioning for his own reality show about the cutthroat world of college admissions. Wearing a light blue sweater vest, he pitches himself as a “life-coach” for families desperate to get their kids into Stanford, Yale and USC. He has the look of a tennis pro and a voice that could pass for New York “fixer” Michael Cohen. “This is a game,’’ he says on the production company video submitted to a network in 2010 and unearthed last week by TMZ . “Just rea...

Ohio Senator Wants to Increase Age of Exemption from Medicaid Work Requirement

The federal government has given Ohio the okay to require non-disabled Medicaid expansion recipients to work 20 hours a week unless they’re caregiving, in job training or college or over 50. One state lawmaker is disappointed, because he wanted that age limit to be higher. Sen. Matt Huffman (R-Lima) said former Gov. John Kasich asked for permission to exempt workers over 50, when lawmakers had wanted it to be 55 – and he’s proposed a bill to make it 65. Huffman said providing government health i...

A degree of corruption

In that classic 1978 college documentary, “Animal House,” Dean Vernon Wormer of Faber College offers soon-to-be-ex-student Kent Dorfman a little helpful advice: “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.” A lot has changed over the past 40 years. Today Dean Wormer might well say, “Rich, spoiled and privileged is no way to go through life.” Granted, being rich and privileged — which is redundant — has traditionally been an excellent way to go through life. While wealth and power do...
