  1. Yes, I read about this “tragedy” and the poor father was “shattered” too.

    The best thing that could happen to education in the U.S. would be to rid ourselves of the monster of quasi-professional college sports. The head football coach at the Univ. of Florida makes more money than the entire Classics department!

    Something’s wrong with that picture. Let’s return to the business of education. Let’s compete in educational areas. Let’s praise, not our quarterbacks, but our professors!

    Okay, I’m done. Have a nice day.
