Ok fans, $400m question time: if you really needed a game-winning hit, who would you want at bat: Harper or Matt Adams? I think you know the answer.

Breaking: Princeton just dropped its essay-score requirement for SAT or ACT takers. Takes effect for students applying to enter in 2019... But it added a wrinkle: students now must submit a graded HS writing assignment.

Update: I'm told this is essentially a technical hurdle for . They're not sure they have enough bandwidth to release all AP scores simultaneously without a system crash. (Obviously, the several-day rollout hurdle is surmountable by tech-savvy teens.)

Is it a technical obstacle that prevents simultaneous score posting? I don't think this scheduling happens with SAT scores. Possibly, if the issue is to avoid a system-overload crash, you could roll it all out over 24 hours, no?

Further from the Douglass oration: "This Fourth July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn." ... I'm sorry to report I've never read this before. It is quite compelling.

"I am not included within the pale of this glorious anniversary! Your high independence only reveals the immeasurable distance between us." -- Frederick Douglass oration, July 5, 1852 A must-read. Worth asking on July 5, 2018: Who TODAY is not included?

I suppose you're right. Being a tech dinosaur myself, I figured there must be at least some people out there under 20 years old who would take the CB test-score viewing instructions at face value. Shows what I know!

So , given my previous tweet: why not just put up all the scores simultaneously so kids on the East Coast don't have to stew for a few days?

So AP scores are out....Interestingly, they go live on a rolling basis over a few days starting on West Coast. But a VERY reliable source in MD tells me that you can get a free VPN for your phone, pretend you're in SF, and then get your scores no matter where you are... Odd.
