University of California President Robert C. Dynes, under fire over millions of dollars in bonuses and other perks secretly paid to top executives, got the support of his board Thursday.
"He is the appropriate leader to resolve these issues and guide the university through this difficult chapter in its history," UC Board of Regents Chairman Gerald Parsky said.
Smiles and applause greeted the statement, read as the board held its regular meeting in San Francisco. Still, the regents had some stern words for their president, saying they "hold him accountable for the university's compensation problems and he has acknowledged his responsibility."
"I don't think it's letting President Dynes off easy at all," Parsky said outside the meeting.
Thanks, Parsk, ol' buddy! This is even better than being a 5th-degree Mason. How cool is this, really?
A month or two from now, after the memories of my fiduciary misdeeds have long since faded from John Q. Public's dim collective memories, I will announce a "need to spend more time with my family", and comfortably (very comfortably) retire.
Life is good.
(A) It is NOT the "greatest" science; it's "substantially equivalent" engineering.
(2) It doesn't serve "all" of humanity; it serves the prime contractors for the Department of War.
-Sheeh! Get it straight, dude...
