A Gaffe From Gee

A Gaffe From Gee
January 12, 2012

Gordon Gee, president of Ohio State University, got himself in trouble Wednesday, when he compared the decentralized nature of university governance to the Polish army. In a speech in Columbus, he said, “When we had these 18 colleges all kind of floating around, they were kind of like PT Boats, they were shooting each other. It was kind of like the Polish army or something. I have no idea what it was," according to an Associated Press account. In the past, Gee has raised money for groups that he has offended, and he suggested that he may have to do the same here, saying, "I’ll have to raise money for Poland now."
