Maybe the next Car Talk. Congratulations!

He's right. Youngstown has it all. Perfect for reality TV and filming. Add the talent at the Dana School and you can add musicals to the products that can be offered from here. Always been a very rich city. Main thanks to Volney Rogers.

Dr. Khawaja was the perfect academic administrator. So many deans and tenured professors could improve YSU for the students if they'd only follow his traits of understanding, dedication, humor and service instead of aggrandizing their pensions. Maybe Tressel can inculcate some of Khawaja's values in the faculty... if they stop dismissing him as just a coach.

Remembering the parishioner at my church whose chihuahua took communion every Sunday morning. Or the Lassie-look-a-like who comforted the distraught at the Sunday evening meditation service. Dogs, the perfect teachers of humanity. And Dwight, I've been allergic to some people in the workplace, and nobody expects them to leave.

Great news for the city as Idora and YNDC march on. The usual naysayers are speechless, I see. You must feel lost when you can't disparage everything about Youngstown.

Maybe Tressel can rescue Youngstown instead of just YSU.

Unbelievable! Maybe residents aren't old enough to remember the mill mentality that caused the rivers to catch fire. Now you (probably suburbanites) want to poison your neighbors with methane and contaminated water. Why not lobby to reintroduce asbestos, DDT and lead paint, there's probably some job creation in that.

Research is his main qualifier. Really? Does he know what a university president does?

Ph.D's (can never remember how to punctuate that) are good lecturers and writers. Not many can empower students or administrate. Even though Tressel, from past behavior, doesn't have forever commitment, he does have the ability to motivate, to facilitate teamwork, to encourage professors toward involvement with their classes.
YSU is too stuck in respect for the unwarrantedly entitled. Tenure often means dull, robotic classes by professors who long ago lost their passion and drive. If Tressel wants to go adjunct, I say why not? Students deserve an active, engaging place where excitement and versatility are role-modeled. These kinds of students will be the ones employed in a future where tenure is extinct.

Drug use is the symptom of a hopeless people. We are growing further from spiritual concsciousness and enactment every day as more and more fall into poverty or disillusionment with capitalist ideals. Climatic catastrophe is probably all that can save us now.
