George Zimmer, the owner and founder of The Men’s Wearhouse, does not background check his employees. “I don’t trust the U.S. justice system to get it right,” says Zimmer, who is himself a recovering alcoholic. “I’d rather make my own decisions, and I believe in giving people a second chance.”
Good to know some people with money and power get shit right.

“The SAT is a scam. It has been around for 50 years. It has never measured anything. And it continues to measure nothing. And the whole game is that everybody who does well on it, is so delighted by their good fortune that they don’t want to attack it. And they are the people in charge. Because of course, the way you get to be in charge is by having high test scores. So it’s this terrific kind of rolling scam that every so often, somebody sort of looks and says—well, you know, does it measure intelligence? No. Does it predict college grades? No. Does it tell you how much you learned in high school? No. Does it predict life happiness or life success in any measure? No. It’s measuring nothing.”
John Katzman, founder of The Princeton Review (via rumpelstiltsforeskin)
When I was studying for the SAT last year, I had to decide between two study guides: one by the College Board ( the group that puts together the SAT test) and the other by the Princeton Review. The Princeton Review’s guide exuded such a distain for the SAT and the College Review, that I knew it would be the guide to get. It was great.
