But its going to have to take on more of the financial burden.

12 of the Worst Places to Live in the US

"New Haven ranked #4 among the 12 worst cities to live in in America:

New Haven is the second largest city in Connecticut after Bridgeport. New Haven is well-known for being the home of Yale University, one of the most prestigious schools in the country. However, the surrounding areas of New Haven are impoverished and crime ridden. The population of the Connecticut city is 130,741. The economy of New Haven was originally based in manufacturing, but since the end of the war New Haven’s working class population has been hit hard. The median household income in New Haven is $29,604 (half the annual cost for a student to attend Yale!) and approximately 25% of the city’s residents live below the poverty line. New Haven also has a significantly high crime rate, as it’s ranked safer than only 3% of US cities. Nearly 68 crimes occur annually for every 1,000 residents. Unless you’re moving there to study, we don’t recommend residing in New Haven."

The insecurity rages over anything that threatens the illusion of Harvard superiority, although Yale seems to be at the forefront.

I'll bet that while that image is critical to his self-worth, he actually contributes very little to sustaining it.

What does New Haven's widely-perceived status as a dump have to do with "the illusion of Harvard superiority?" Nobody is criticizing Yale here, or threatening Yale's "illusion of self-worth". Certainly that "illusion" cannot lean on New Haven to support it, can it Calvin?

Obvious to everyone else, from every school - even other Harvard fans - but you.
