Saturday Column: Why don’t legislators see value of higher education?

Because no one at KU understands economic development.

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.

Saturday Column: Brownback must acknowledge error, alter course

Keith Richards is right. Other schools are actively recruiting research faculty and KU is becoming a "farm club"...a minor league franchise for the other schools.

You gotta realize that other states are doing the opposite of Kansas: they are funding their public universities and their respective research programs. Its an arms race...and Kansas has both of them tied behind it's back.

But don't worry...things like the computer, the Internet, and cancer drugs are way over-rated and Kansas can be happy with being home of some kind of deep fried food .

Saturday Column: State must look at education funding priorities

More money for edumacation? Kansas don't need dat.

Just cut taxes for meat packing companies and telemarketing centers and you get goooood paying jobs.

Besides, once you edumacate people, they leave Kansas. Dat ain't good.

Saturday Column: Regents need better information on universities

Julie Goon leaving for Texas? Check around with KU people. Sometimes people that have had three different jobs at three different universities in less than four years is a sign of "other dynamics".
