    The Paul family moved to Lake Jackson, Texas, in 1968,[11][14] where he was raised[15][16] and where his father began a medical practice and for an extent of time was the only obstetrician in Brazoria County.[11][14] When he was 13, his father was elected to the United States House of Representatives.[17] In his teenage years, Paul studied the Austrian economists that his father respected, as well as the writings of Objectivist philosopher Ayn Rand.[11] Paul went to Brazoswood High School and was on the swimming team and played defensive back on the football team.[9][15] Paul attended Baylor University from fall 1981 to summer 1984. He was enrolled in the honors program at Baylor, and had scored approximately in the 90th percentile on the Medical College Admission Test.[18] During the time he spent at Baylor, he was involved in the swim team and Young Conservatives of Texas and was a member of a secret organization known as the NoZe Brotherhood.[19] Paul left Baylor early when he was accepted into the Duke University School of Medicine, where he earned an M.D. in 1988, and completed his residency in 1993.[18]*

    •  the NoZe Brotherhood. (0+ / 0-)
      In NoZe lore, there are four types of people in the world. Members are NoZe Brothers; non-members are "Infidels". "Fortunates" are infidels who have had sex with a NoZe Brother. "Exiles" are NoZe Brothers who have graduated or otherwise left the University.

      The NoZe Brothers delight in praising the memory of Brother Long NoZe in prose and song with ditties such as "This Old God", "When the NoZe is Blown up Yonder", and "Rock Around the Cross". The traditional NoZe saga "The Cry of the Enormous Rabbit" is usually recited semiannually.....

    •  Does Duke realize (0+ / 0-)

      that he cheated on the exams, by his own account?

      •  technically not cheating (I assume you're talking (0+ / 0-)

        about his "misinformation"). But clearly it was unethical and dishonest.

        While Democrats work to get more people to vote, Republicans work to ensure those votes won't count.
