RE: Be Bold: The Campaign for Rice
I find myself on the opposite side of the fence from where I was say, 7 years ago.

Bac then, there were numerous people on the Parliament urging us to show displeasure with the way things were going with the football team by withholding our financial or physical support until we got the changes we wanted. I opposed that, saying we needed to support the team regardless, that starving the team would not help.

Now, in regards to the football team AND the University, I find myself not wanting to contribute money when things are not going in the direction(s) I would prefer. Seems that would just enable what I consider to be bad choices.

Haven't yet decided on a course of action.

At this point I am probably more unhappy with the direction of the university as a whole than with the direction of the athletic program. I find myself not wanting to contribute to either until there are some severe directional changes, changes so severe that they are unlikely to occur.

Trumpism is to traditional logic what the imaginary plane is to real numbers.

Some of the same rules apply but it might seem counter intuitive at first

I was told there wouldn't be any math on this test.

Or we could spend it on a palatial guilded opera house that costs around $1 million per audience seat while lying to everyone and saying that we are pursuing equity.

The dumb 4 year degree holders and leftist dog whistling while building a materially elitist University are probably related, but what do I know.

What industry do you work in, out of curiosity?

Energy industry...more specifically commodity trading.
