Low salary and budget cuts. She was the professor who gained national attention in the WTC rescue attempts and the recent rescue attempts at the Utah mine disaster. Story Here.These three paragraphs reveal the sad state of education in Floriduh: "USF is a great university, and it will make it, but it's going to be harder," Murphy said. "And the truth is, I am getting older, and my opportunities to make a difference in this world are getting shorter. These are my prime-time years."She said she cannot spend those years worrying about the cost of printer paper. Yes, it has come down to that, she said."We're down to the level here where they're saying you have to pay for your own printer paper." It looks like Florida is achieving its new goal of becoming the most mediocre state in the nation. No one wants to pay any taxes to save maybe $10 a year, well guess what? Money does not grow on trees. There is no magical "free enterprise fairy" that will wave a magic wand and pay for things like education, roads, firemen, or police. Services are cut.But that is OK. We got foot-a-ma-ball and enough huge rebel flags (honoring the treasonous succession from the Union) to make people think we are in the Confederacy. When some professional sports team owned by millionaires wants the citizens to pass a tax referendum to build a stadium with public funds, the two-toothed rednecks are sacrificing their virgin daughters on the alter of pro sports so rich people can get richer and poor can get poorer and stupider.Keep the populace dumb and voting in the best interests of the rich class instead of themselves and others in their socioeconomic class - that is the goal of the leaders in Florida.This news about the brain drain at USF is a sad day for USF and the other State Universities.
