    A tale of two Michael Browns

    A tale of two Michael Browns

    "Berthinia Rutledge-Brown lost three babies before she gave birth to Michael, so she poured all her energy into helping him with his studies," the Daily Mail reported.

    And 17 years later, she left him with a terribly difficult decision: Harvard or Yale or Princeton or Northwestern or Penn or Stanford or Georgetown or Vanderbilt or any one of a dozen other colleges.

    All have accepted Michael Brown's applications for college. All have offered him a scholarship.

    "After sixth grade, Mike was in control of his education. He was focused, he knew what he wanted and he made his own decisions," his mom told the Daily Mail.

    He's a student at Mirabeau B. Lamar High School in Houston, where they have a special academy for excellent students who combine born smarts with hard work to become the best.

    Lamar was the second president of the Republic of Texas, who stressed education. However, at 17, he turned down Princeton.

    The natural comparison of course is to loudmouth David Hogg, who has ghoulishly capitalized on the rare tragedy at his high school to become a Marxist celebrity. The four University of California schools that he wanted to attend not only refused to give him scholarships but declined his application.

    But a more important comparison is to another Michael Brown, the young man in Ferguson, Missouri, whose suicide-by-cop ignited a national nightmare.

    Both were big men. Both black. Both teenagers. Both enjoyed all the opportunities our nation offers.

    Michael D. Brown chose the thug life. It's the easy way out. Michael Brown of Houston chose hard work, which paid off in an opportunity to work even harder for an even bigger payoff.

    To be fair, one had a parent who gave a darn about him.

    Which decision did the press and the Marxists turn into a national cause?

    In spite of all that, and in spite of the fact that the Hogg Pigg (who admitted openly what Laura Ingraham stated out loud) said himself that he couldn't get admitted to several so-so colleges, Hogg is the hero and the intelligent kid is a nobody.

    I read about this kid yesterday. His mom worked 2 (or was it 3?) jobs to keep this kid going. He put in for all of these universities with a high GPA and an ACT score of 34 out of 36, but didn't really expect any to take him, much less every last one of them. He said he got his first letter in December.

    He was expecting disappointment, and didn't want to open in in front of his mom and disappoint her. So he opened it at a friend's house. After that turned out so good and all of the others started rolling in with similar news, his mom took time off from work to be there when the last 3 were opened.

    Accepted by every university he put in for. Princeton, Harvard, Northwestern, Stanford, Georgetown, Penn and a slew of others.

    But Hogg, who can't get in one of the ones that accept practically anybody, is a big deal.
