So I was more than pleasantly surprised to see a large moving van blocking the street on Longwood Drive near my local Starbucks. With temperatures not expected above freezing who would be moving today? Yes, loyal readers, Dr. Thomas Calhoun is officially taking up residence at the president's mansion. A long time coming, I would like to welcome the university's next president knowing that it signals a sea change in the management of an institution decimated by incompetence, misconduct and malfeasance. I wish Dr. Calhoun the best and hope to use this humble venue to chronicle the rebuilding of this important educational institution.
Today's heroes are the movers braving the cold to ensure the new president gets moved in quickly so that he may go about the business of leading an institution devoid of leadership for the past six years.
