    Oh, maybe the new board forcibly appointed by the governor outside normal procedures is the problem. Start with a rotten root and you get rotten fruit.

    At this point I don't know what else to do.
    Was there anything being done to fix the issue before the governor stepped in?

    Cut the man loose. The fact that this isn't the first time he exhibited this kind of behavior should have told the powers at UofL all they need to know.

    There was already a civil war on the board over President Ramsey and the foundation. The fight about whether to remove Ramsey -- and the perceived lack of quick, decisive action -- is why the governor appointed the new board in the first place.

    Institutional change moves slowly.

    That's what, about six boxes of Titleist Pro-V 1?

    Truthfully, the C-J article made it sound like it was multiple thefts spread out over quite some time.

    Thanks for the info.

    I guess my question is at what point, after continuous inaction, do you think it's appropriate for the Governor to step in and intervene?
