Donald J. Trump in his 1964 New York Military Academy yearbook.

In the scheme of things, I know this is a big fat nothing. Yet, it irks me that Donald J. Trump has been able to censor information about his high school and college grades and SAT scores.

I doubt the average Joe or Joanne cares whether Trump scored 900 or 1,600 on his SATs or graduated with a “C” or “A” average, but if you’re a lawyer—particularly, a Big Law type—I think this issue might strike a chord. And if you’re halfway attuned to matters of race and fairness, you should be as hot and bothered as I am.
