    “Some PR Truth from UofL: Is the Sky Falling?”

    At least PR-man Hebert is more honest than the UofL website on the matter of campus buyouts to senior profs and staff. He points out that the real reason is to enable Card Land to hire at the cheapest price for the least experienced people. The bureaucrats call this “efficiency.” Of course, the huge Foundation coffers (though its poor investments are producing decreases lately) will not be touched. Wouldn’t want to keep JR from dipping his paws into the golden cookie jar.
