In re: A Freshman at Yale

“I could have ended up in Guantánamo Bay. Instead I ended up at Yale.”

This comes from a great story called “The Freshman” that I recommend in this mornings NY Times magazine about a former Taliban member who is now at Yale. It is interesting for a number of reasons, one was just hearing about the life of someone working for the Taliban in Afghanistan and how he got wrapped up in that and having to travel the world working for them defending some of their practices. The other part that is fascinating is hearing the story of how he ended up as a freshman at Yale.
