From Will Slack:

In the interest of driving readership to the Berkshire Eagle, I won’t quote anymore – but additional details include items on misuse of a college credit card, some fantastic lack of grammar, and even more unbelievable reasoning, including that Moore isn’t responsible for Williams not checking his undergrad transcript.

Opinion: Anyone with knowledge of college policy or process should be careful commenting, so as not to say somthing that Moore can quote out-of-context for his benefit.
