From a New York Times article on "The 110 Things New Yorkers Talked About in 2010":
67. The valedictorian of this year's graduating class at Columbia University plagiarized part of his speech from a YouTube video posted by the comedian Patton Oswalt.
75. Five Columbia University students are arrested on charges of selling an array of drugs at several fraternity houses and other campus residences.
92. A Columbia University professor is accused of having a consensual incestuous affair with his 24-year-old daughter. Columbia is having quite the year.
Not on the Times list: Columbia University's President Lee Bollinger's $1,753,984 annual compensation in 2008, reported this year. Or his taking over as chairman of the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Or Columbia's use of eminent domain for its campus expansion.
