Contrary to what my wife and daughters may think, “must-see TV” is not The Bachelor or The Voice. It happens Sunday nights at 6:00 p.m. and it is called Sixty Minutes.
On this Sunday it was a story of a dream. The story goes something like this. There’s a college called NYU. Great place. There is a man named Ken Langone, who grew up in a very working class environment and who attended NYU and later made a lot of money helping start up Home Depot. Langone approached the Dean of the Medical School, Dr. Robert Grossman and asked him; “what do you want to do?” Grossman responded; “I would like it to be free to attend NYU Medical School.”
That was ten years ago. Last year, in front of every student of NYU’s Medical School, Langone announced that it would be free to attend Medical School at NYU. The school had raised $450,000,000 to fund free tuition in perpetuity.
