    Bring back JTM !

    • honest Uncle Bernie 08/22/2016

      He may well be appreciated more now than when he was here.

      I doubt that he would be interested. I hope he has more sense than that!

      • Dog 08/22/2016

        well he is older than Coltrane …

      • daffy duck 08/22/2016

        jTM for financial savvy and organization, but NKW for ethics

        • Dog 08/22/2016

          I actually teach a seminar about ethics, since I am qualified because dogs know shit (DKS).

          One of the principles of ethics is uniform and fair treatment (i.e. don’t play favorites). When was the last UO admin able to pass that litmus test?

    I see they have zero classified staff on that committee. No big surprise there.

    • Just Words 08/26/2016

      Actually, they do. Whining is exhausting. Whining over inaccurate statements is even worse.

      is the staff person on this search, but you would have been correct for any of the last 10 major searches on campus.
