    Um, well… Rich or poor, it’s nice to have money.

    I’m grateful for your posting the material on Oregon, although it makes me very sad. I graduated there in 1992, feel I got a very good education, and generally have warm memories of the place. I remember fondly how mediocre the football team seemed to be and how little anyone seemed to care. I had a vague sense that this joyous indifference no longer reigned there, but I guess I didn’t know just how much had changed. So these images are depressing as hell.

    Jerry: The joyous indifference you describe is at the heart of so many people’s college memories. Look at what it’s become.

    Jerry, if you have a chance, get a copy of last weeks U of O student newspaper, The Emerald. They chronicled the life of university adjunct professor in the physical education department. She has to deliver papers in the early morning in order to supplement her income.

    Further, they article also stated that over 60% of U of O professors are adjuncts. So while the school and its corporate boosters have no problem shelling out massive amounts of money for athletic related accouterments, they can’t pay the bulk of their teachers a living wage. And the student body and alumni seem not to care, as long as the Ducks contend for the BCS.

    That Emerald article is on-line: http://dailyemerald.com/2013/07/22/universities-have-a-rising-trend-in-hiring-more-adjuct-faculty-and-paying-them-less/

    Thanks, charlie and Stephen. While I was a bit surprised that Rennie’s Landing is still around, I was genuinely gobsmacked to see that they’re the ones who finally provided that Geology adjunct with health insurance.
