$500 million from UWO to Oshkosh

The Northwestern ran a story on the consultant's report from last week about the positive financial impact that we have on Oshkosh.

Is it me, or has the Northwestern turned over a new leaf lately? It seems like the paper has consistently been running positive stories about the university in the last few months.

I am still holding a grudge over Stew's description of professors as equivalents of Jeffery Dahmers, but the editorial spirit has changed. Has Gannett changed its corporate policy?

It's you. I've subscribed to the Northwestern for 8 years. In that time, I have seen articles and editorials that made us sound like the greatest thing since sliced bread, and others that made us seem like evil incarnate. They can be very good at singing our praises -- Bio/Micro has been on the receiving end of a lot of positive ink. They also are able to misunderstand the nature of academe horribly and say things that are embarrassing in their cluelessness. They are not out to get us, nor are they in our pocket -- and I suppose that is as it should be.
