Crow is expanding his empire. Look at me, I'm Mike Crow, king of the world. What other gimmick will Crow use to weasel taxpayers out of their money? Bigger is not better. ASU is a party school, has below average graduation rates. Stop wasting our money Mike Crow.

Why should ASU grow at all?

It is already far too expensive. It is of only fair to middling quality by ordinary standards by which such things are measured and fairly poor on some of the old standard measures, like, for example, the size of the library which, in ASU's case, is piddling.

We have people who are losing survival benefits in this state so why are we paying this clown far too much for doing something that any reasonably intelligent person can do just as well? We are short on money, we are told, for everything in this state so why should we expand this zoo for tenured scholars who will contribute nothing to the economy.

Higher education is no longer worth the investment. It is so expensive that graduates are slaves to their own debts and many of them will never get ahead because of them. Forget the expansion. Put them all in portable classrooms on a graded gravel lot with lots of parking and slash their cushy pay checks. Fire most or all of the administrators.
