SUNY "leaders" are seriously misguided in their attempts to convert the system into low-brow techie trade-schools for training uneducated industrial dociles; bored button-pushers. This idiotic go-fight-it-out strategy would predictably emphasize geographic advantages and ultimately destroy remote campuses and the small towns that depend on them. Instead, state "government" should re-institute a stock-transfer tax, attrit staff deadwood, get solvent and face its responsibilities.

Dan was a fountain of fresh and stimulating thought and is not replaceable.
I admired him as a colleague, valued him as a friend and relied on him, always, for a view of the world that was warmly compassionate, intellectually rigorous and entirely his own.

Let me pass along a suggestion originally delivered to me in a breathless phone call from my friend Diane: You spread peanut butter on the flat side of a Freihofer's chocolate chip cookie (the old recipe), then you sandwich on another one.

Kramer is so far in the cops' pocket that he can't see daylight, and he wouldn't recognize justice if it bit him in the ass.
