This one is just too, too rich for satire. The story is in today's News and Observer.
After years of controversy over a proposed donation to the study of Western cultures, the John William Pope Foundation of Raleigh will give UNC-Chapel Hill $2.3 million, most of which will go to the football program.
The university announced the gift Thursday. It includes $2 million for an investment fund that will generate $100,000 a year to supplement the salaries of assistant football coaches.
Poor Puppetmaster. The mean old faculty at UNC didn't like the fact that he had too many strings on his original gift to study the glories of white old rich men. So instead of supporting intellectual integrity and furthering the highest ideals of public education, the Puppetmaster takes his money and punts!
Just what the world needs right now. Another $2.3 million designed to fund a bunch of testosterone-filled jocks who beat the shit out of each other every fall weekend. What a freakin' joke. Daddy's not even cold in his grave and the Puppetmaster is showing his true colors: small-minded, petty, and irrelevant.
I wonder what the Puppets at the Pope Center for
Liar Higher Education have to say about this turn of events?
