Are you all still waiting for the plan? Let's build our own.

1. Furlough the BOT as irrelevant. The savings in meals alone should be a significant aid.

2. Furlough anyone with a VP title and above.

3. Furlough anyone who spends more time in meetings than teaching.

4. Furlough anyone who has time to write and circulate long word-choked petitions denouncing other people's freedom of speech.

5. Furlough the CAS dean, who is only around part-time anyway.

How long should the furloughs last? Hmmmm, let me think. Some have interpreted the Mayan calander as saying the world will end December 21, 2012 so I suggest the furloughs end December 22,2012.

Per # 3, so you'll be furloughing everyone who sits in on Faculty Senate and A&S meetings, correct?

Per#3, I don't think he said exactly that... FS meetings are 4 hours a month and similarly A&S...

Most Professors are in a classroom a little more than that.

There are exceptions: for example, people of the Executive Committee of the FS: one would have to carefully look at their time ratios.

Fac Sen Exec Committee are just administrative enablers. And A&S Council talks a tough game, but I don't think their much different.

I fully agree. I wonder if they are even smart enough to know that they are carrying coal for the upper administration and will not get rewarded for it?
