Manic Monday

Good morning. It’s time for another manic Monday; some bad news and good news to start off your week.

What’s wrong with U.S. universities? According to Dissent, too much administration.

If we go further back in time, the rise in administrators becomes even more striking. In the last forty years the number of full-time faculty at colleges and universities has grown by 50 percent—in line with increases in student enrollment—but in this same period the number of administrators has risen by 85 percent and the number of staffers required to help the administrators has jumped by a whopping 240 percent. Small wonder, then, that so many policy decisions at colleges and universities are made without—or despite—faculty input.

On the upside, the world’s biggest Reality Competition/Sporting Event, aka the U.S. Presidential Election, will end tomorrow as voters go to the polls.

The bickering, shouting, ranting, conspiracy-mongering, robo-calls, and campaign ads will come to an end.

Though the complaining about who’s President won’t stop. That never stops. One side is always pissed.

Have a great week.

  1. You are so right! You can’t make everyone happy, but you can always make someone angry. Sometimes you don’t even know what you said to make it happen. We have been watching the election coverage from Canada. Our elections don’t have your drama!
