This morning in the Centre Daily Times, a fan blog caught my attention. It pretty much captures the essence of thoughts we’ve all been thinking, and it does so eloquently. I recommend that all who are involved to any extent, observers and participants alike, read this well written piece. The central theme struck a familiar chord with me, having been involved with another state university: money, power, secrecy. I believe that these keywords veritably define the ivory tower of today, and not just at Penn State.
