UA chancellor slices the baloney

Posted By on Fri, Sep 16, 2011 at 6:50 AM

Just because everybody does it — works out kickback schemes with college campus food service suppliers — doesn't make it right, no matter how much UA Chancellor David Gearhart may insist otherwise.

Bottom line: This is but another way for colleges to lay off costs on students without calling it tuition.

The next time you're of a mind to beat up on UCA — and its leaders' dishonesty in representing an Aramark pay off to make a better mansion for the president remains a key difference in what transpired there — contemplate what a similarly aggressive Democrat-Gazette reporting effort might find in Fayetteville, Jonesboro, Pine Bluff, etc.
