England's Prince Harry has been accused of cheating on a school exam.

The charge, if proven true, would be a disgrace to the royal family. It would not, however, make Harry ineligible to serve as senior senator from Massachusetts.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Cheating in college isn't among the greatest of sins. It should be a warning, however, of a character flaw in need of repair. The Prince has not been accused of any number of horrible crimes princes have committed in days gone by. All depends upon how he deals with it. If the accusation is true he should publicly admit it and ask pardon. And he should make certain that this young lady is rewarded for her courage in bringing him to account.

    After all, who really cares about waging a questionable war. . . .when we can spend our precious time condemning famous people who cheat in college and using that misdeed to deride a political opponent. To be so reductive is to be blind to clear judgment and to want overall, not the truth, but the public confirmation of one's own perspective. The faithful can only rest in knowing that the Truth will be revealed, despite those who would frame it based on their own political purposes.

    Nor would it harm his chances of working at the New York Times or CBS or any number of media outlets, producing and directing fictionalized documentaries nor running as a Democrat almost anywhere in the United States. He can probably also secure a fine position at any number of top notch universities. If those things fail, perhaps certain US Catholic prelates may need his assistance?
