Wow, this is like my children:
1. Do something bad. Get chastised.
2. Then they apologize.
3. Then they ask: "I apologized. Now can I get ice cream."
Answer: "No. You apologized because it was the right thing to do; not because you would get rewarded for doing the right thing to correct your wrong."

Looks like people are rewarding UVa for doing the right thing after doing a wrong. I will wait to see how this shakes out before some of my hard work time is used to reward this constantly begging entity.

UVA needs all that money now, so they can pay for all the upcoming lawsuits.

It's a shame that all of this money will be wasted on another extra-large building with three parking spaces. The employees that supported Sullivan will get the same pay check they have been getting for the last six years. The BOV decision wasn't the only thing that will hurt UVA, if the economy picks up they will see a large wave of skilled employees seeking careers elsewhere.

If McDonnel had thrown that Hag Dragass out on her wrinkled up rear end the donations would have tripled. So Helen, how's that crow taste?
