Sometimes you wonder 

...what goes through the head of our President when he says things like this?
Faculty have lots of free time and get lots of recognition and honors for their work.
This is in the new edition of Business Central, the local Chamber of Commerce publication (the new edition is not yet on-line). I saw this puff piece in my dentist's office this morning, not the sort of thing to calm you before the drill. As one poster on SCSU-PRAVDADISCUSS notes, "Is it any wonder that governors, legislators, and the general public view university faculty as people who don't do much when a University President makes such statements in a public forum? Is he held accountable for his statements?" No, he's not as long as the Chancellor and the trustees continue to stick their heads in the sand and renew his contract.
