Re: “Off with his head!

I have a slightly different take given my experience with some southern ultra conservatives. The real racists cannot accept that a man of color can be president. They blame a cabal of liberals who they believe are playing a massive joke on the good people of America by foisting an African american non-christian foreigner on us. So they hate Obama, and all he represents...I really think it transcends mere racism

Re: “Vocabulary misfunction

From Dictionary.com:
"resembling a cartoon or caricature: The novel is full of predictable, cartoon characters, never believable as real people."

This definition indicates a connotation that the work is superficial; without depth or deep meaning.

If you meant to convey that, then you used the appropriate word. If not, it wasn't the best choice. It happens.

Re: “Shane Broadway to lead Higher Education

Shane is a sincere guy, and his heart is in the right place. I hope he has the guts to really DO something, rather than shuffle papers and feed the fat financial beast. The structure of the state higher education system is inherently wasteful. universities are rewarded and funded for enrollment, particularly graduate enrollment, and not education. We are all in competition with each other for the same students, and the same money. Every school wants to be another UofA Fayetteville, throwing money at athletic programs rather than spending it wisely on students, teachers and education. There is a lot of waste and duplication. The schools compete to bring in more $200,000 a year administrators and $10,000 consultants while paying professors with PhD the same as high school teachers. We need reform, not the status quo.
