Oh no, the local paper slants its questions in a pro-KU way. The horror!

Next on the list is to stop Bob Davis from spewing his pro-Jayhawk propaganda during basketball games.

4thGrade says: "38th of all public schools:

85th overall.

Nice job LJWworld. Way to hide your bias."

Well, they are a public school, paid for by taxpayers, so It's entirely appropriate to rank them against other public (and publicly funded) schools if nothing else than as a kind of basic "report card" to taxpayers.

You remind me of Debbie Downer of SNL.

I read a couple of years ago that KU lost points on one of these scales because of the high number of classes taught by graduate students instead of professors. Those graduate student teachers are incredibly underpaid, too. That doesn't impress me a bit.

That and the hideous parking situation. Why don't they build parking garages over some of the lots? It's completely nuts, and an undue hardship for many students who are working and have tight schedules.
