"Hmmmmm" You've never worked there, so shut-up!!
First, I did not say that I've never worked there.

Second, my comments were not about "there" in particular.

And, Mr. Butcher, I am quite familiar with what is going on with higher ed. It is being destroyed by an anti-intellectual culture.

Contractors get away with installing crap and nobody says a thing to them. Machines don't even work when the contractors leave, but they are not called back to fix them. Is this ignorance or has someone got a check?????

Yeah right... Like you wouldnt want your percentage of earnings from one million to seven hundred thousand dollars, if he was operating your personal owned objects to gain fincicial eanrings for HIS company.....

This sounds like some sort of poor man's Ponzi scheme, and yes, I know sounds like an oxymoron considering the big cash he brought in.

People, please reread the article. This man hasn't been charged with anything as of yet. No charges, no trial. Don't persecute him until all the facts are out and in the open.
We are not to judge, that's let up to God.
Time will tell.

What the hell does that have to do with anything? One guy - ACCUSED - of something does not add up to 300 "liberal crooks" - that's just stupid.

This sort of thing happens at UVa and other institutions. It seems the six-figure salary is not enough for some people.

I think we should not only just persecute him immediately, but we should also draw sweeping conclusions about what low life liberal scum all tenured faculty at UVA are, what a total sham higher learning in general is, and adamantly insist that as a race we were all much better off in the per-renissance days when the villagers were free to burn whomever they wanted at the stake.

The UVA REctor will probably be re-appointed in spite of transgressions greater than these. Where are the prosecutors investigateing the BOV, particularly the senior one, "Dragon lady"?

Majority of UVA engineering professors with tenure have their shell companies. There are professors who make $ 1 million in one year through these one/two man companies, not in 10 years as in Allaire’s case. These professors take the research contracts through their shell companies and then subcontract themselves through UVA, or even run their contracts using UVA equipment without to pay UVA. In many cases UVA staff or researchers have to do the work for professors’ shell companies as well. Everyone knows this in UVA. Allaire is just a scapegoat

Might want to wait till facts come out. Could be another Dragas looking for blood. UVA does throw away alot of bucks though.

This particular liberal "crook" was a part of the team that invented the artificial heart. Remember that as you eat your morning hog while watching Fox News and start feeling a pang in your chest.
