Beware the Gopher!

The Emaciated Gopher sounded the first warning shots to the University of Minnesota yesterday, as 70-some grad students marched against poverty-level wages and exorbitant student fees. The University responded with a Bush-administration flunky who says that making far less than the federal poverty level is something we should be grateful for. But only for grad students, not for, say, the 7th highest paid college president in the nation. Check out some surprisingly good media coverage of the event here (with some nice video):

You want to say highest paid public university prez...

(It is still obscene, but then they can come back and whine that there are a lot of private college presidents that make more...)
