Ohio: Graduation Ceremonies Canceled After Cheating
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A school district said it uncovered a cheating scheme so pervasive that it had to cancel graduation ceremonies for its 60 seniors. A senior at Centerburg High School gained access to teachers’ computers, found tests, and printed and distributed them to classmates, administrators said. Graduation was canceled because so many seniors either cheated or knew about the cheating but failed to report it, district officials said. The superintendent, Dorothy Holden, said the district had to take a stand and let students know that cheating could not be tolerated. Diplomas will be sent in the mail.

Be a shame

«Mr. Friedman, who once ran Goldman, says none of these events involved any conflicts. He says his job as chairman of the New York Fed isn’t a policy-making one, that he didn’t consider his purchases of more Goldman shares to conflict with Fed policy, and bought shares because they were very cheap.»

Translation:  That there is a beautiful bank you have  - be a shame if something were to happen to it.
