University WasteThe University of Tennessee knows no bounds when it comes to the wasting of our money:
In a time of deep recession-some would say (as I have in this space) that we are in a depression, the University of Tennessee has conducted itself as though it is immune from the impact of that depression and it is entitled to endless infusions of taxpayer dollars for projects which are not of immediate necessity. All the while, UT increases tuition on a semi-regular basis and now makes students pay for football games (and if I am not mistaken, students still must pay their student activities fee) while begging the State for more and more money.
Support for higher education is extremely important. That support should not be wasted.
