To the editor:
I’m getting bored with Dolph Simons’ weekly KU bash column.
By my count, 31 of his last 52 articles were devoted to carping on KU administration. He says that he wants the university to focus on academics, but his weekly column shows that he can’t even get over his own strange obsession with athletics.
If Dolph truly cares about academics, he should write timely articles focused on the current chancellor’s outstanding advances in that arena.
He should write about the chancellor’s success in raising funds for the cancer center. He should write about her fast-approaching proposal to increase admission standards. And he should write about her renewed focus on retention. There are so many options!
Dolph has spent the past year venting about athletics and former administrators. It’s time to move on. There’s plenty of good going on at KU; maybe Dolph could start there.
