What's going on with the parking lots here at UT? Specifically: What's up with Lot 13? Lot 13 can't hold all the people who need it. It looks like 13N, which is sorely needed, is gone. And that extra lot we had Fall 2013--which was a lifesaver for a lot of us--is long gone. Do we really need another building? (If that's what's happening on the space.) What'll we do when Fall 2014 rolls around and we can't get in to teach because we can't find a parking place?

There is a change in the weather
And a change in the sea
From now on
There's gonna be a change in UT
Bloggie puts a proposal to BOT members and the UT community.
Instead of all this grandiose puffery, big business deals, big-talk and giant administrative costs/marketing promises that have gone on for the past seven years, why don't we all just aim at becoming a modest-sized, excellent university? A gem, sparkling and bright here in Northwest Ohio, of which students, alums, the Toledo community, BOT members, faculty, administrators and the people of the State of Ohio can be proud.
The BOT and faculty and a few(er) number of administrators can work together to create an enduring force of good. The BOT are stewards and stewards both shepherd and help create the future. Now is the time.
