Business Insider: A high school principal quit after student journalists investigated her credentials

This reminds me of an old story about the person who lied about attending Stanford on his resume (http://money.cnn.com/2002/10/03/technology/veritas/). Ironically, it was for a company named Veritas which is Latin for truth. Also ironically, he lied about attending a school (Stanford) on the other side of the freeway from the company’s headquarters.

Let the journalists, be it high school or the New York Times, do their job. I will end with a quote I heard from one of the heirs of the Guinness beer empire (at a conference at Stanford coincidentally):

“Without truth, there is only manipulation.”
