I'm married to the greatest human being alive, and the only one who is to the left of me politically.

Re: “Glenwood United Methodist urges shunning of LGBT day at Magic Springs UPDATE

> Would it be better if they opened their hearts and tried to understand,

I'm pretty sure everyone in Arkansas already recognizes and "understands" homophobia and bigotry.

Re: “UA trustees OK proposed tenure change

It was a done deal the second it was first proposed. The faculty and the University System were sold down the river by the Board, and folks like Pryor and Gibson who should have known better.

Re: “UALR law profs dispute argument for change in tenure rule

Actually, there are other "industries" that offer tenure, specifically judgeships and priesthoods. These are positions where those in the position may feel compelled to speak truths that are unpopular. This was pointed out by one of the professors at UAM in an essay posted here:

Re: “UA trustees consider a gag order. It's about sports and it's a bad idea.

The attack on faculty tenure is a done deal, unless the BOT sees it for what it is and does something about it. The administration ran their little dog-and-pony show to make it appear as if the faculties had input--they did not. Faculty members were allowed to make comments on a web page as if anyone was going to pay attention to any of it. Meetings were held in Little Rock, open only to the administration's invited guests, and no attorneys for faculty were allowed. The administration has decided that the bad press sure to follow will be worth turning the University System into the Walmart of colleges (if Walmart had a lousy football team).

Re: “Banned in 2018

I don't understand why you can't make Lancaster write more? What the hell has he got to do anyway? Doesn't he live in Grant County? It's not like anything is happening there.

Re: “Governor Hutchinson calls for in-state tuition freeze at Arkansas four-year colleges

Ten million dollars spread among the state's universities amounts to a little bit of nothing, especially when most of it will go to Fayetteville. Meanwhile, UAMS is laying people off by the hundreds, and faculty and staff at all the state's universities are already paid less than similar schools in neighboring states (administrators are doing great!).
