You know we love the West End and always push the positives there but let’s get real a moment. It’s time to rain on Greg Fischer’s parade again. Nothing he proposes is going to work. Fluffy, flowery language means absolutely nothing. People of the West End know it’s a load of horse dookey. He cares about the West End about as much as he cares about Metro Animal Services.

    “The Board of Cadavers Will Never Awaken!”

    Ramsey’s new salary package puts in stark terms that the Board at UofL is hopeless in any attempt to appear to be functioning. How can they pay the president with perhaps the most scandal-ridden campus in America such undeserved money? Another sign that colleges are simply big bidness: You pay the jerks at the helm astronomically–no matter how badly they do. Sad–but not unexpected (given the Board of Cadavers). And the Commonwealth sleeps.
