Haiku on trustee controversies at Virginia and Penn State

University Trustee Haiku
July 23, 2012

Trustees learn some rules:
“Keep noses in -- fingers out!”
Do we know they work?

In June, Visitors
Of U.Va. put all their
"Fingers in" -- quite fast.

July came ‘round and
PSU’s board took the stage
“Noses out” -- quite far.

Sad -- the rules proved right
As the boards got them so wrong --
Q.E.D. times two.
