Colbert withdraws!

Stephen Colbert has withdrawn from the race for president. I'm sure the real reason for this action was the overwhelming pressure from the transgender and allied communities who are aghast at his transphobic jokes.

I wish.

U-rah-rah, Wisconsin!

UW gets $85 million for School of Business,
Gift is biggest ever, but won't require new name

My alma mater--I'm so proud.

But I'm not terribly surprised--they've always had smart people at the business school, people who understand how money can be used for good purposes. Their alumni showed it with this action, and the current students did also. They recently approved an increase in their own tuition, so better professors could be hired--a situation necessitated by the state legislature's refusal to adequately fund the university.

I wasn't in the business school, though I did take a course in accounting principles there. But I'm proud of my fellow Badgers.
