    Without a shred of an academic background,

    Thought the University of Virginia should become more like the University of Phoenix.

    This is what happens when you get Republican orcs appointed to the Board of Visitors because they're contributors to Republican campaigns.

    These ugly Republicans need to resign. And report immediately for a swirlie.

      was no hero in these events, but  your portrayal of who she is and what she hoped to accomplish is far from accurate.

      no one was looking to transform uva into university of phoenix.  public universities -- especially those who endeavor to excel at the highest level -- face significant challenges.

      the process to get there -- back-room deals, closed-door conversations and big-donor influencers -- lacked transparency and integrity.  problems dragas amplified.  and while the latest vote to reinstate sullivan was a bit too choreographed, it seems like everyone will now be even more energized to advance the mission of UVa while honoring the identity of my alma mater.

      Wahoo Wa.

      Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love.
