Given the fact that the increasing unequal distribution of wealth is threatening our nation at its very core, I am not sure how reassuring I find it that Princeton’s best and brightest are going to work at Goldman Sachs and will tutor disadvantaged minority youth in their spare time (Alumni Scene, March 20). Is this simply an oxymoron or the 21st century’s version of “Princeton in the nation’s service,” or both?
