TSOTW: Now with 40% campus content!

I'm on my grind, cousin. Ain't got time for frontin'.

  • Top of the list today is yesterday's Board of Governors meeting, which seemed to make no mention of the engineering building and its potential location, instead focusing on its suddenly expanding deficit brought on by a leveling off of first year enrollment numbers. Said the always handsomely dressed Vice Provost Neil Gold, the university hasn't been able "to grow [enrollment] in the way we wished."

    Adding to the deficit is a decrease in second year students, which UWindsor admin is chalking up to expansions on Toronto university campuses, allowing them to accommodate more students, who may have in the past come to Windsor.

    In light of the deficit, look forward to frozen teaching budgets, suspension of some renovation projects, limiting scholarships and pissy columns from Gord Henderson musing why the university doesn't take the city's generous handout.

  • Oh, and it's Wednesday, which means the mothership gives you an interview with Bedouin Soundclash; a movement for more student activism for Darfur in the Sudan and a story on Hanson...wait, what the hell? Someone's pushing an agenda over there. Rivait, I'm looking in your direction.

  • And what is this about hateful language being flung at a faculty member in the Fac of Ed last Wednesday? Specifically "racist, anti-Semitic language and a threat," not to mention "abusive language and intimidating behaviour towards gay students in the Faculty of Law." The quotes are from an open letter signed by Ross, Neil and the Deans of the Faculties of Education and Law. Seems like these sorts of incidents are popping up with an alarming level of frequency. And to think, admin spent ten large to prove there was no racism on campus.

  • Elsewhere: Best defense for public indecency fails in court; apparently we still care about missing white girl; the Canadian chocolate cartel comes under scrutiny; drunk moose brings festive cheer to Alaska bar patons.

So, now would be a bad time to tell you about the larger Hanson piece planned for January then...

As long as you compliment it with an investigative feature on whatever happened to The Moffats.

The sad part is, I can already answer that question. Legitimately.
