    “How Much for the Empress?”

    $100 bucks to attend a luncheon lecture by Empress Elaine Chao? That huge fee is appropriate only when one considers that corporate honchos will likely be the sole attendees. Why? The inflated price will keep out those working stiffs that are too smelly for the lady’s taste. Cheers, Empress.

    “In Praise of UofL”

    Kudos to UofL for its needed and commendable response to recent homophobic hate on other college campuses. It speaks well of UofL that a response team at Belknap’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Services acted so quickly.

    “Ya Gotta Be Tough”

    If the University of Louisville is sincere in their stated goal to eliminate bullying and harassment,
    I commend them.

    But I don’t believe it for a minute.
