Daily Northwestern Update

The Northwestern ran a front page story today, entitled "UWO Grant funds spike." The story is a nice feature, about how much money the university brings in. The headline is, as usual, a boneheaded one--what does spike mean in this context? The suggestion is that there is something temporary or unusual in the fact that we bring in lots of outside funds to support our research agendas. Perhaps they are suggesting that they hope that the numbers drop again, once we are all forced to teach more.

They also published the letter to the editor from Tom Lammers.
