Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

All The Other Kids Are Doing It

Ever catch a kid doing something wrong only to hear: "All the other kids are doing it."
That is how I felt when I read WVU President David Hardesty's excuse about why he's taking $70,000 a year to sit on the board of a big coal company:
"This is not an uncommon arrangement. If you look at other universities with whom we compete, you would find their presidents sitting on corporate boards as well. It's becoming increasingly common for university presidents to serve on the boards of corporations."
All the other kids are doing it? Fine. Take away his allowance -- the entire $275,000-a-year that he rakes in as the university's president.
