So loyal readers, after much contemplation over the past few days I have decided to return to the era of Crony State University being a reality in terms of our blog graphic. It saddens me that with the departure of President Calhoun, the university has returned to business as usual. The appointed board members are clearly riding and/or driving #CSUclowncar at this point. The tragedy is that Springfield is remarkably silent about the continuing implosion of a taxpayer supported university. We will see which elected officials take action first, those with oversight and budget power or those with executive authority. Or maybe this is a competition to see who can do the least to save the institution from what many believe is its impending demise.
And when you, loyal readers, believe we have actually turned a corner toward a different future I will replace the graphic. Until then I think we all need reminding of how we got here in the first place.
