The three purposes of the University?--To provide sex for the students, sports for the alumni, and parking for the faculty.

...and don't forget the fat paychecks for chancellors...Peace!
Abi, this comment comes to you from the Charles de Gaulle airport...There is a campus in UC Berkeley named after Clark Kerr, which is on a side-route towards LBNL on the hill. Yet another quote attributed to him: He was fired from the UC-Chancellor position by none other than Ronald Reagan (then governor of California) and his famous statement while leaving office was that "He left office just as he entered it: fired with enthusiasm".
Great post abi, thanks for sharing
