Saturday Column: Regents, Relays and roads among comment topics

There are absolutely no worries when Gray Luttle resigns. KU already has a replacement in the form of the Provost.

His personal charisma and vision are only exceeded by his imagination and solid leadership skills. kU has nothing to worry about as the outstanding performance of the last several years will only continue.

Saturday Column: KU faces challenges in finding, hiring top faculty

Perhaps the LJW can interview the Chancellor and Provost, since they are deemed to be articulate, proactive, and visionary. This is obvious, given the fantastic outcomes that have been generated during the last few yearrs at KU.

Kansas Senate passes budget that includes cuts to KU and student financial aid

C'mon...we all know that edumacation is way overrated and you really don't need it to get a good job a meat packing plant or a telemarketing office.

Saturday Column: Education needs stronger champions in Kansas

Are you suggesting that KU's leaders lack bold vision?

That the Chancellor and Provost can't deliver meaningful messages? That they can't relate to the "common" Kansan? That the ivory tower on Mt. Oread only has a window facing east to KC?

Budget panel rejects 'absurd' KU requests for enhancement funding

ZOOM! Did you hear that?

Those are the other states passing Kansas by, because they are investing into education, infrastructure, and most importantly....people.

Don't be surprised when other schools upgrade their poaching efforts of key KU faculty.

But Kansas will still be able to recruit telemarketing companies and plastic molding companies...something Virgil Peck can probably understand in Tyro, Kansas.

But I gotta ask...where is Tyro...and does it have paved roads?

Kansas Sen. Roberts skeptical of Obama moves on Cuba

The buffoons of Kansas voted in Roberts and Brownback and they think they have a mandate. Live with it.

KU partners with regional entrepreneurship program

Wow....I thought this relationship was created years ago. Why did it take so long? Are there "personality" issues again?

KU announces visit by second finalist for vice chancellor of research

Forget these silly interviews. Just let the Provost use the direct hire process to bring in another former colleague/friend.

He's used it before and you can see the "great results" everywhere on campus.
