Lest we forget that Garrison has his supporters

This fine alum posts on the intemperance of "radical" professors (emphasis mine):

As I read the host of negative comments toward President Garrison I was reminded why, as West Virginians we are constantly defending our position in society. Some West Virginians are scared of progress, or anything different from status quo. People are intimidated by a young, energetic, and successful University President who does not meet some cookie cutter standard a few radical academics think is a must for a successful University climate. So when any type of problem arises these radicals set out on a head hunting mission to smear President Garrison. This mentality must end! If we truly want to make our University the best it can be we must support President Garrison while he takes the nessisary steps to hold the guily parties responsible and move the University forward. Keep up the good work Mike! Derek V. Long B.S. Business Administration Little Birch, West Virginia

Different from the status quo, unlike, you know, smug old-boy networks.

shouldn't a B.S. in business admin have figured out how to spell, like, necessary before earning a degree?

Derek V. Long just happens to be the son of Carolyn Long. Is this the same Carolyn Long who is Braxton County Superintendent (and member of the WVU BOG)?!?! Amazing, huh?
