Reader: DU Occupy the Honor Roll event fails as satire and on the facts

A recent Kelsey Whipple post focused on DU's Young Americans For Liberty and an event dubbed "Occupy the Honor Roll," in which participants equated Occupy Wall Street's calls for greater equity with the redistribution of smart kids' GPA to dumber ones. Which didn't tickle one reader's funny bone.

Oh, aren't they just too clever for words?

I'm sure their lame-brained attempt at sarcasm/satire will resonate with a certain crowd. But if they really think the accumulation and distribution of wealth works anything like the accumulation and distribution of GPA's, they are naïve beyond belief.
