Secretarial Speculations on Spanier

President Spanier has been with us for thirteen years. Might this be his last?

Marc Ambinder, one of The Atlantic’s bloggers, posted some musings on how Obama might fill his cabinet.

"u r a QT!" said Obama to Spanier
"URAQT!" said Obama to Spanier

For Education Secretary, Democrats say that Graham Spainer, the president of Penn State University, and Ray Mabus, the former governor of Mississippi, are said to be in the running. (If Joe Paterno gets a vote, then maybe it’s Mabus.)

Obama would be lucky to get our Dear Prez. Think of how his magic could effect CHANGE in Washington. He could make the deficit disappear or even pull a bailout out of his hat.

We found this picture in the Department of Public Information database. Does anybody want to offer a body language analysis?

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
