Cornell Student Has a Little Problem With Goldman Sachs

Cornell history major Tony Manfred is waging a campaign against the school’s decision to allow representatives of Goldman Sachs to recruit for positions on campus in the school paper, The Cornell Daily Sun. The company is “like an impossibly large vacuum cleaner whose belly fills not with dirt and hair destined for the garbage, but dollars and cents destined for the already bulging pockets of the upper-class,” the budding Matt Taibbi begins his blistering editorial, “This we can all agree on.” Yet each year, the school allows these beasts to participate in career fairs, planting dreams of sugarplum jobs in the heads of impressionable college students. “It vets and interrogates, tests and examines, and eventually it leaves campus with a wish list of eager undergrads,” he writes. And then it steals their souls.

Ultimately, they are lost to humanity.

Probably he is just jealous.
