Hush money paid, but the boss doesn't hush up 

Fellow Liberty and Power blogger Robert Campbell has the details here and here on the University of Southern Mississippi case, which has not ended up very well at all. The fired professors got two years pay in return for effectively leaving the school. While President Thames was supposed to keep his mouth shut, apparently he has not. Someone needs to remind him how to play weak trumps.

UPDATE (5/4): Charles Nuckolls and Campbell (twice) update and elaborate. Has anyone else ever heard of a university administration with a "Director of Risk Management"?
