Think about this. Van Jones is a Yale Law School graduate (just like Glenn Reynolds) who according to a 2005 interview, had already landed a D.C. job after graduation but instead decided to move to the San Francisco area to become involved in a radical protest movement. He subsequently received a Rockfeller Foundation fellowship and, eventually, landed a “czar” job at the White House.

And yet, somehow, despite all his success, this Ivy League-educated Fortunate Son sees nothing but misery and oppression everywhere. Am I the only one who finds this bizarre?

It’s not bizarre at all. Unlike me, Van Jones has never been Yalie Of The Week. Hence, he’s oppressed and miserable. [And no matter what he does, he’ll never be the first Yalie Of The Week — ed. I thought of mentioning that, but it would have looked like bragging.]
