Employed scholars and professors could accept less pay. This would enable universities to hire more scholars and broaden the job market for young graduates. You know, spread the wealth.

The President implemented a "freeze" only to accumulate state payroll funds that she has used in the intereim to bump up her non-tenured cronies to the magic "51%" of state tax purpose dollars that keep them in place after she is (hopefully) off of LI. Cutting costs? How much is spent on her LI mansion and servants, on electric power for the fountains, "brooks", and unnecessary lighting (up 30%, even though FBI-reportable crime went up even more). Every week the entire campus body members(30,000) are inundated with self-aggrandizing high-gloss PR (like Bush) highlighting her "accomplishments", using a 10-year old photo to boot. Cost of production is about $70-95K per printed 3-color item, sent via campus and USPS to 30,000 "devoted" admirers (and then right into the trash). What a terribly incompetent and wasteful, self-centered person. Had funds for 5 years to create a "wireless technology center", now she has morphed the isolated building in the tax-free Gyrodyne space into a "high-tech energy center" overnight (more grossly distorted PR material, even in Newsday), wondering why Albany has pulled back the big green curtain on the Wizard of Awze. Pathetic leadership, both Albany and Buffalo created more jobs, not more money for friends, with the same funds. The campus would finally give money to "It's All About Us" fundraising, if it was not really "All about Her". Before she leaves we assume there will be an opportunity for her to stand on the Wang Center roof and tell the faculty "Let them eat cake", while she fiddles and the university standing in AAU slides. Oh, but now it cannot fall further, it is dead last in the whole list. June 30th 2009 will be a day of great celebration for the long-awaited farewell.....leave early, please.
