Looks like Garg and BOT is getting the message. As long as Dunn is camped out on Wick Ave., donors will keep their wallets closed.

The BOT is getting the message from alum and supporters that no more money will be donated until the pest in the mansion on Wick is shown the door. He resigned. He needs to go.

That's right glb. All so those jocks can go to school for free while everyone else on campus pays through the nose for what is quickly becoming a joke of a degree.

No doubt Jim Tressel was a great coach and teacher. He was an effective teacher for his students and an effective PR man for his programs. That does not qualify someone to be a great administrator. Effective PR means telling people what they want to hear so they agree with you. Being an effective administrator is often about telling people what they don't want to hear with the expectation that they have to listen or be insubordinate. That doesn't fit Jim Tressel's mold. As for YSU donations, this alum's wallet is closed until Dunn is gone. That's the only way to send the message to the BOT.

Oh c'mon Attis. What's another $250 hike when students already pay upward of $4k plus per semester just for tuition and fees? They just add it onto their student loans. Small potatoes in the grand scheme of things. After all, the BOT needs the money to find another president and pay the one who is studying for his new gig. The students should feel honored to pay for such largesse. (Not).

This is clearly the fault of the trustees. There should have been serious red flags waving when the decision to hire Dunn was made. They knew there were issues at Murray State, and that Dunn was under duress there. It was published information. They hired him anyway. That speaks volumes. And SIU should have thought very carefully of hiring someone who jumps ship after 7 months. Hope they don't get burned. Of course, Dunn is probably signing a non-compete there that prohibits him from leaving for a year or so. Something the YSU trustees failed to have Dunn do. They should all immediately resign. What a circus.

Hilarious. A republican rich guy telling everyone else that materialism is bad. Just goes to show how clueless Kasich is to anyone making less than $250k salary a year. And his tax cut is exactly what he says it isn't. A campaign ploy. JobsOhio needs opened to public scrutiny. Everything else Kasich says is a distraction.

Maybe. Maybe not. I say we don't take a chance but I'm only one voice, one vote. And I sure would hate to leave a slave labor legacy to my kids and grand kids as a result of not worrying about it.

The argument that since laws exist to protect workers, there is no need for unions is naive at best. Those laws would not exist in the first place if it wasn't for unions. Corporations and businesses didn't support those efforts. And they still don't. They only follow them because they are the law. If unions are gone, watch how fast those laws are repealed and those protections disappear. There is no reason to believe that corporations and businesses won't move to repeal those protections if they know organized labor no longer exists. Is that a chance we really want to take?
