News from the Orange and Blue
This was sent to me anonymously...thought I'd post it.
There was a little bird who attended the Orange and Blue game Saturday at the swamp. This little bird was able to fly up to the President's Skybox and listen in to the discussions about football, the University and the nonsensical things that people talk about at football games. This little bird indicated that perhaps all is not lost at the University of Florida (academically) and that expectations of program cuts are not as likely as it may appear.
We'll have to see if this little bird got the right message. In the meantime, an article buried in the local newspaper discusses the practical problems facing budget resolution between the house and senate. Ron Cunningham has a very nice editorial in the newspaper. There are also a couple of good letters from students involved in the cuts.
Here's the bottom line for those who are interested in saving higher education in Florida. Write your house members and tell them to up the funding. Write your senators and tell them not to drop their funding.
Oh yes, the Orange won the game 31-21.
