Heisman winner

Congratulations to fellow Helix High School alum Reggie Bush on winning the Heisman trophy. Bush's win and, should he choose to go pro, his lock on the No. 1 pick in next year's NFL draft will make my alma mater the answer to a few trivia questions.

What high school has had both a Heisman trophy winner and a Naismith award winner?

What high school had two alums picked No. 1 in the NFL draft in consecutive years?

When Bush's victory was announced this evening, I was at the San Diego Slam basketball extravaganza watching San Diego State stink it up again. A family friend who has a daughter who is one year my senior asked me if I had gone to Helix. I told her I had. Then she asked me if I knew Reggie Bush. I told her no and laughed. She explained that she thought that our time at Helix might have overlapped. I informed her that Reggie graduated from high school 3 years ago and I graduated 15 years ago.

I suppose it's nice that I still have my youthful appearance.

Why, one must ask, was the suit against Biden's student debt wipe “inevitable”?

Was it because the Biden admin is in flagrant violation of the law, and because *everyone* in America knows it?

Not in Waldman’s view, apparently. | @charlescwcooke
