Faked CV

Seen in various places - the case of Adam Wheeler, here, here, here and here. I do wonder about the propriety, ethics and legality of The National Review actually posting the famous CV on their website; on the other hand, it is such a work of art in itself that it deserves to be read.

THe irony here of course is that he clearly diplays a talent towards ... something. I mean, the creativity level is high, and to be able to put the work in to be granted the various funds he has required more skill and work than many other people in his position would be prepared to do. i do wonder why however, once he got into Harvard, he didn't just proceed through and graduate with a good degree. His desire to push the envelope seems to have been his grand undoing.

I'm reminded of the Dortmunder novel where The Kid first appears: he applies for a job, with a made up CV, and JC immediately hires him to help with her scams!

I quite like them. I like caper novels, and films!
