Tweet (Akiit.com) Look at the dollar bills in your wallet. They say they are “legal tender for all debts.” But are they? What makes them valuable? What makes them worth anything?

Tweet (Akiit.com) Recently, I saw two separate stories about right-wing disrupters.

Which is Worse? College Corruption or Admissions SCAM?

Tweet (Akiit.com) Last week’s column discussed the highly publicized university corruption scheme wherein wealthy parents bought admission at prestigious universities for their children.
