"Individual greed vs a culture of greed?
Where is the line between the ordinary American with his two cars, a boat, 2500 sq ft house in Issaquah, 42 inch plasma, and $5 a cup lattes and this greed the media see at Wall street?
How many ordinary folks are upset that the UW almost spent $6mil/ year on a football coach or that we all spent $1,000,000,000 TEAR down a usable stadium and build a two palaces that cater to them what can afford luxury boxes?
Is it greed when the prexy of the Udub clears a mil? How about when an assembly line worker in Detroit needs $60k to lve a normal life?
I fear that the greed at the top is only a symptom of a society where vastly more students choose Law or Business than choose Engineering, Writing, or Agricultural Science?
All you non Udub types out there, are you happy about the erosion of the UW as an intellectual/cultural center? Is it a good idea to replace a place where WA kids can talk with historians and economists with watered down teaching enterprises like UW Tacoma or the proposed Bellevue State CC?
Does anyone actually think the driving force behind Reaganism was altruism?
