A good story

I recently heard a story about a professor using grades to illustrate socialism, and then saw it on a blog. However, it is only a story, according to http://www.snopes.com/college/exam/socialism.asp
While we can't as yet pin down the origin of the grade averaging piece, anecdotal evidence indicates it's at least fifteen years older than its 2009 outbreak would tend to indicate, in that one of our readers says he heard it at bible college in 1994 from a professor teaching world civics.
It is a good story. Too bad it is not actually a true story.
