Finally a bit of reason prevails in this mess created in large part by the same group of decision makers who now intend to go through the same process which resulted in this terrible choice for Prez. That needs to change. At the very least, a new search committee, as proposed by YSU faculty, needs to be established. But why begin a new search process? Were there not at least three finalists brought to YSU for extensive interviews in the last round? Why not save public funds and a whole lot of unnecessary consternation and just announce the #2 candidate then as the new Prez?

Hillary got her Hitler analogies mixed up. The duly elected government of Ukraine was violently deposed by a fascist coup led by the Right Sector, a vicious right-wing outfit which traces its origin to the Ukrainians who sided with Hitler during WWII. Hitler also led a fascist Putsch in Germany in his road to totalitarian rule. Putin is hardly a fascist, which is more than can be said for the current rules of this besieged country.

After the fascist coup in the Ukraine, Kerry went there today and pledged to give them $1 billion of our money. Imagine how $1 billion would help out the distressed Mahoning Valley. Happy Fat Tuesday, folks!

Amen 123! If this incompetent BOT drains the public treasury of another 100 grand+ to pay this crook in absentia until mid-August, they should be charged with malfeasance, if not theft.

No 3 year kid would freeze to death silently. No one in a house with 11 persons heard his cries before they stopped? Why was the door back to the house locked? Something stinks to high heaven here.

The YSU Provost is "overseas" during this crisis; the YSU VP for Finance is gone; the dead duck YSU Prez in being lavishly paid (for doing nothing) until mid-August; and the YSU BOT "would not be upset" to see him go before then. Well, the taxpayer is very upset, and so should everyone in our community at the imported aristocrats running YSU (into the ground). Is this theater at YSU a farce, comedy or tragedy?

No matter how many of these politicos pray for it, The Second Coming of Tressel, the annointed YSU Savior-to-be, ain't gonna happen, and it absolutely should not. First, he is not qualified to be the Prez of any university that has any academic standards; second, he was brought to the University of Akron in a position created expressedly for him so that he would transition into the presidency of that rapidly sinking university and has accelerated that plunge; thirdly, he comes with an awful lot of baggage which stinks to high heaven. Actually, he should be put out to pasture (along with the entire YSU board of trustees which created this fiasco). Change state law legislators so that university trustees are elected instead of appointed by corrupt politicos.

Getting screwed in this fiasco brought on Gargoyle and Done is the Ohio taxpayer. While Done is laughing all the way to the bank (and SIU), Gargoyle and his totally incompetent crew of totally untrustworthy trustees continue to squander taxpayer money. What is needed is not only a regime change at YSU, but a systemic one. Members of the BOT, like members of a Board of Education, need to be elected by We The People and not appointed by corrupt politicians.

Instead of just pouring a few hundred grand of public money on a dead duck Prez through mid-August, this BOT actually is willing to pour another few hundred grand on a second Prez, an interim one, at the same time. They should be charged with theft, but won't get convicted because of obvious insanity.
