When the Slush Fund Hits the Fan! by The Elephant's Child

According to a story in The Marine Corps Times, the Navy’s Inspector General has found that, the “number one priority” at the Naval Academy is not finding, educating and graduating the best possible naval officers, but the academy’s diversity efforts.  The key is having the right skin color and ancestors from the right foreign countries.   Aside from that, it’s the “slush fund” for guests at VIP parties, the golf association, and perks for the football coaches.

Call it “fast-and-loose accounting,” with off-the-books funding, deviation from the usual mission intensive approach of our military and overly–enthusiastic football fans, with all the drama of the usual scandal. Sad.
