In other news, it would seem that the death of the honor code at USMA can be attributed to the wuhan…  70 cadets accused of cheating on a remote math exam.  Apparently they will be “re-educated” rather than dismissed.  I am sure they will be given passing grades as a reward for participating… But that’s just me talking, a graduate of the Academy whose administration now forbids the painting of Tecumseh before football games because… offensive.  Sigh…  Memories...
