    Like public universities don’t already do that?

    There is no comparison. The CEO of Strayer Education Inc., a for-profit “university” made more than $41 million in 2009. No head of a non-profit university or university sytem, private or public, came close. Mind you, the main source of income for these for-profit schools are government guaranteed student loans.

    There is a reason that college main website uses the TLD .edu but their athletic websites use .com.
    For example, University of Michigan – a top level and highly regarded public university – main website:
    -
    www.umich.edu
    -
    Their athletic website:
    -
    http://www.mgoblue.com/

    There’s a perfectly legitimate reason for that. For example, the reason the head of the California University system has a salary in the millions and lives in a state funded mansion while the Governor gets paid in the thousands and lives in private dwellings is that running an education institution is obviously so much more complex and critical than being responsible for the entire state. Cronyism or self serving quid pro quo has nothing to do with it.

    The other day, some posts were lamenting the lack of a comment section for “9 Chickweed Lane” Since there’s not much happening with Doonesbury, and this space often devolves into political bickering, what about borrowing it to engage in dialogue re “9”?

    Government universities are at least as wasteful as their private-sector counterparts. They just spread the loot amongst more bureaucrats. The private sector has fewer illusions about the scam. In both cases anyone who does actual teaching usually gets the short end of the stick.

    U of M may be a good school, but they can have their nasty weather. Lots of others have nasty winter weather, but their nasty winters just go on and on…

    LWP— later on today in Lawrence it will be 55. Ann Arbor has a high of 36. Sorry, I have been in both places. I’ll take our crappy weather over their crappy weather. I love ya LWP, but can’t let you have this one.

    In Kansas, we tend to get a very wide range of temps. That is normal for us.

    I guess every place gets a wide range of temps— just to clarify, I meant in terms of a daily wide range of temps is not unusual. We are talking a range of 20-30 degrees, not just 5-10.
