Latest PR from Kitzhaber

12/6/2011: He is “moving forward on education”. He “feels a tremendous sense of urgency”. He will let UO community have “meaningful input in the transition and search” for new Prez – thanks. He won’t do anything about independent boards until 2013. Wow. No reason to read this, we’ve heard it all before but if you insist, it’s just out, posted here. The only credible candidate for UO president seems astonishingly prescient: he pre-posted his reply to the governor last week in the RG, here.

    I too find myself moving forward, with a great sense of urgency, towards a good place to puke.

    The one lucky thing the Board did was wait until after the fall job-search deadlines had passed to fire Lariviere. (I’d say “smart thing” but it’s pretty obvious they know nothing about how higher education works.) Even if Kitzhaber is sincere — and I don’t trust that he is — if he waits until 2013 to fix this mess, that’ll be plenty of time to bleed out lots of faculty *and* donors.
