11/1/2012: They’ve just posted an ad for a new McMorran house event manager, focusing on development. Nothing about scotch for the faculty.
10/23/2012. Me neither. Don’t take it personally, Gottfredson is obviously not interested in social networking with the UO faculty, and apparently has even laid off the staffer in charge of events there. These parties were always a little oily, but you did learn a few things, and the scotch was decent.
FWIW Gottfredson’s office has now posted a transcript of his “State of UO” speech to the UO Senate on 10/11, here. It is just as boring and uninformative as it was in person. For all I can tell this guy will someday fire Bean and Geller, clean out JH, cut deals with Kitzhaber and Knight, control the athletic deficit, manage the faculty union, and prove to be a great UO President. Probably not though, and meanwhile he’s putting me to sleep.
