In the US and over in the Northeast, everyone recognizes the Rolling Stone article as a complete hit piece on Dartmouth, filled with an inaccurate and attention-seeking account about what happens at the college. Andrew Lohse, the only source of the article, was kicked out of Dartmouth after doing cocaine and assaulting a security officer (look it up), and was apparently seeking to get revenge and publicity in a desperate plea for attention.

Citing the Rolling Stone as your factual source is regarded as ludicrous over here. To use an analogy, that would be like Reuters citing a story in one of the many British Tabloids and reporting it as an absolute fact. Dartmouth has episodes of drinking, sexual assault, and hazing…but it’s certainly not regarded as any worse than any other American institution. Unfortunate for Jim Kim that this has gotten blown out of proportion, but, well, maybe he deserves it a bit. He was a terrible President of Dartmouth

Get your facts correct Felix. Or maybe forget about facts and just sign-up for the Dartmouth Review. You would certainly find plenty of kinship for shoddy and inflammatory blahhh-ging there.

But to suggest that this means no change ever happens is silly and self-serving. Sure, it may seem to a lot of you Dartmouth grads that “Greek culture” or somesuch will just never ever change. I’m sure in 1960 it seemed that women would never ever attend Dartmouth. Does Dartmouth have coed dorms, courses that focus on areas outside the Western Civ canon, student representation on the board of trustees? Oh the horror! Oh the horror!

Felix’s view may be valuable precisely because he is an outsider. Hanover can be a little bit insular at times.

His insinuations, without actually saying anything direct, is idiotic at best and libelous at worst.” (some clown, last above)

The only insinuations of the sort you suggest are in your twisted mind, fella. F.S. only pointed out the troubled history of the WB in this respect and a similar history at Dartmouth that Kim failed to make any progress toward repairing.

His insinuations, without actually saying anything direct, is idiotic at best and libelous at worst. I guess since he’s a “financial blogger” and not actually a journalist, there is no professional standard or code of conduct by which he has to abide. I would have thought that Reuters would have a higher standard of anyone writing under its banner, but I guess I’m wrong.

But perhaps Ngozi is the least bad choice? I know very little about her, but apparently she has had some success in confronting corruption in Nigeria. The confirmation should be on the basis of the record, first, and a clear and concise agenda on the candidate’s priorities, second. Jim Kim is good on the first, poor on the second. Perhaps Ngozi is better on balance? Having worked at the WB does not disqualify her, what matters is what she did there, and later as finance minister in Nigeria. The fact that she is a woman, and African, is without any relevance whatsoever.

After all the last guy who tried to change anything there got kicked out after suggesting that his long term partner should not be penalised for moving to another job in order to avoid the **appearence** of favoritism – as opposed to the normal corruption he was trying to stamp out.

I’m surprised how all the intelligent commenters focus on the specifics of the case, where it seems obvious to me that the only reason it is brought up (by RS and by extension Felix) is to discredit Jim Kim and enhance the chances of another favored candidate, in this case Ngozi. If the Dartmouth allegations are the best one can come up with against Jim Kim, his confirmation is sown up. A better case can be made, in my view, by simply reprinting his recent FT op-ed. After reading that I became convinced that Kim would change essentially nothing at the WB and its objectives, and is therefore not the right candidate. That will of course not stop him from being confirmed, on the contrary. Whether Ngozi would be a better choice, I don’t know. Jeff Sachs or Larry Summers certainly aren’t.

y2k, I’m going to ask you to clarify that, because I don’t believe you are saying what it sounds like to me.
