Baylor in Turmoil (?)
Rumors are raging at Baylor, after a University of Texas-affiliated blogger had reported that Baylor's board of Regents met on Tuesday morning and voted to fire President Ken Starr. Other news sources quickly picked up on the story, Baylor's official word was that nothing was being announced right now.
I learned long ago not to jump to conclusions on partial information. I really don't know what is going on, or what basis there would be for such an action. At the least, though, this is clearly a time of tumult for Baylor, created by a very real and important issue-- the efforts (or lack of effort) by the university to address the problem of rape on campus.
