He Gets It

Okay, so the president of Loyola is a smart, hard-working, good dude.

"Of course you say that," you might say, "because he thus far has kept you on staff."
I would respond,"That is probably a factor in my saying that, but I really think I would say that even if I had been part of the layoffs this week. He's making the best of a very bad situation."

Anyway, Loyola President Fr. Kevin Wm. Wildes, S.J., Ph.D., will appear on the WWL TV Channel 4 Morning News Show on December 12 at 6:30 am. He will discuss the university re-opening in January. Fr. Wildes is also scheduled to appear on WLAE's "Road to Recovery" show on Wednesday, December 21 at noon.

"6:30 a.m.?????" you might say. "Are you crazy???"

Look, as you're coming in from Parasol's or F&M's or the Bon Temps from the night before, just flip on the TV. It'll be on in like 10 minutes.

Phew, I was worried I'd have to look at that Karen Swenson. Oh, yeah, she quit the city eventhough her husband is a NOPD officer.

The president of Tulane is one righteous dude, too. As the largest private employer in the city, it must hurt his heart a lot to have to lay people off. They just don't need as many employees in a city less than half of what it was. And 86% of the students are expected to return! Roll Wave! and Thank you Scott Cowen.

Karen Swenson keeps smiling but looks unhappy, must be more to the story of her departure than "wanting to be near her family".
