Now That's Rich

I just got a telephone call from my alma mater (University of Michigan) hitting me up for a donation. What was the pitch? Some new chair they want to endow? A new curriculum initiative? Nope. I was told I should help my university because rankings are based in part on how much support alumni provide. Please! I'm supposed to open my checkbook because you want to improve your U.S. News & World Report ranking?
