...The One-Minute Pundit
Saturday, April 16, 2011
The new king of a local university wants to wipe out poverty from his neighborhood. The only way he can do that is by expanding his enrollment twenty-fold, and we suspect even Bill Cosby University is finding gentrification only goes so far; and by somehow persuading industry to relocate in those neighborhoods it's defenestrated, and the first calling of America's CEOs is to refuse to provide work for the locals. Inevitably he'll go the EDS-'n'-MEDS route and get GUVMENT and his pliant parent clients to build him some Taj Mahals. We've had enough needless spending on kolleje kampusses, and when a new king like this promises to act as a local savior we want to permanently stop our ears up.
