The Folly and the Ivy: Tough Times at Harvard?

It's come to this.

With the economy refusing to get up, like some drunken frat boy the morning after, it's come to my attention that Harvard faces a dire dilemma: how to attract the few students whose parents still have money.

With its endowment down double digits, and more students than ever needing financial aid, Harvard's campaign to reel in "big fish" freshmen has taken a desperate turn.

Now, I could be wrong, but it appears Harvard is planning a series of ads aimed at prep school students. How do I know this? I've discovered one of its "rejected commercials".

Judge for yourself.
