The "Let Them Eat Cake" School of Public Relations
So it's Lloyd Jacobs as oracle of the board and the voice of faculty, too (and staff also, for that matter). He must be a happy man to to be so trusted. This is like having the prosecuting attorney double as your defense attorney, which certainly saves time wasted in testimony, deliberation and examining evidence. Omniscient Jake. In Jake We Trust. Jake, Advocate of the Oppressed!
Even more astonishing is that Summons is a high level public relations executive for a major oil company in town. Is this how PR is done these days? "We can't be talking to no mere underlings. We will delegate."
Is "LET THEM EAT JAKE" the new motto of the BOT?
