    “To College, at Any Cost!”

    Cathy Card: “I guess I wait another year before goin’ to UofL. Can’t afford the tuition increase–both my parents are out of work.”

    Cici Cat: “I’m goin’ to private Berea for a much cheaper price. Transferred from UK. What’s the problem at UofL”?

    Cathy Card: “I’ve heard there’s too much wasted cash goin’ to the honchos and their associate and assistants, or whatever. They did save $250,000 when one of the deans went to prison, though.”

    Cici Cat: “What a bummer. I thought that dean stuff was all about anonymous crap. Are his ‘superiors’ still on campus?”

    So very sad when an eagerly anticipated annual stream of revenue & fun is washed away in a stream of overflowing muddy water… Events that take much planning & many willing participants & many local & out-of-town spectators & lots of media involvement…but events that greatly depend on the cooperation of Mother Nature.

    On the other hand, our devastation & losses could have been SO much more severe. So far, aside from our revered KDF, the most serious losses seem to be to people & businesses who gambled by KNOWINGLY & WILLINGLY existing in areas that are subject to flooding. For them, it’s an eyes-wide-open trade off.
