Random Thoughts

1. An old saying says, "If you don't like the weather in Michigan, wait five minutes."

On Monday, the following occurred within 24 hours:

A thunderstorm in the early morning hours, complete with torrential rains and a tornado watch.
Balmy weather reaching a high near seventy degrees.
A sudden cold snap, along with wind that almost blew me over.
Snow with accumulation in the evening.

2. Debbie Stabenow: Dangerously Incompetent.

3. According to recently released survey results, the faculty hate Judy Bailey. A full 83.4% of respondents do not have confidence in her ability to lead this university. 64.3% strongly felt that way. They have similar thoughts about Linda Delene.

Bailey has criticized the results, because "only" 53% of the faculty responded. That's a pretty good response rate for a survey.

The groups that hate Bailey now include faculty, students, grad students, unions, republicans, democrats, greens, and Medallion scholars. Did I miss anyone?

4. A letter to the editor Tuesday in the Herald from math professor Alan Schwenk notes that while liberals self-righteously condemned Coulter for being "mean," they tried to silence us by tearing down our fliers.

In response to the notion that the poor liberals just couldn't control themselves because they were so offended, I would point out that even the mild-mannered Students for Life have had their flyers torn down. All they say is "The future is pro-life." Liberals really are fascists who can't stand free speech. The speech is today at 7PM in Sangren.
