— Where do Fortune 500 CEOs come from? Harvard and Stanford, by far – Becky Yerak  (DIERSEN: Do you have a degree from an Ivy League University?  I do not.  I worked for GAO 1980-1997.  When Charles Bowsher took over GAO in 1981 and ran it for the next 15 years, he focused on upgrading GAO’s employees, that is, he focused hiring, retaining, and promoting employees who had degrees from Ivy League universities.  Of course, needless-to-say, my degrees from NIU, Loyola, DePaul, and IIT became worthless in GAO’s eyes.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-fortune-ceo-colleges-0901-biz-20160831-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The University of Chicago is known for Nobel Prize-winning economists, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has bragging rights to several technology visionaries. But when it comes to producing the Fortune 500’s current crop of chief executives, Illinois’ institutions of higher learning come up short. No college in Illinois cracks the top 10 list of the alma maters of today’s captains of industry, according to a newly released analysis by Equilar.)
— HARDCOPY ARTICLE TITLE: Clinton’s appeal to U.S. veterans: Get on board – Catherine Lucy  (DIERSEN: Government is nasty.  Politics is nasty.  Are you a veteran?  I am not.  My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have always stressed not only that I am not a veteran, but that I sought and obtained student and financial hardship draft deferments 1966-1971. They hint/imply/argue/shout that because I avoided the draft, that is, because I am a draft dodger, I was able to a) buy a new 1968 Oldsmobile 442 in 1967, b) buy a new 1969 Dodge Charger SE in 1968, c) buy a new 1972 Corvette in 1971, d) buy a new town home in University Park in 1972, c) buy a studio condo in the Outer Drive East (ODE) building in 1974, d) buy a one bedroom condo in the ODE building in 1976, e) graduate from NIU in 1970 debt-free, f) earn an MBA from Loyola in 1976, g) etc.  They hint/imply/argue/shout that if I had avoid the draft, that is, if had not become a draft dodger, I provably would have suffered serious injuries or I would have been killed in Vietnam.)

— U.S. Rep. Rush complains of racial profiling by Chicago police – Jeremy Gorner and Katherine Skiba (DIERSEN: How bad are your demographics?  My demographics are terrible.  Ever-increasingly, under the Democrats and under the RINOs, those with the following demographics are profiled as being racists, sexists, bigots, and even worse things: Protestant, conservative, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owner, non-veteran, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.  Backlash because of the aforesaid profiling is a major reason why Trump won the Republican presidential primary.)
