    From TongueTied.com:

    The Ann Arbor News reports that students attending the University of Michigan next fall will pay 2.8 percent more in tuition than they did this year and get even less for their money.

    A budget approved for fiscal 2004-2005 includes some 122 job cuts, including 40 faculty positions, and reduced library hours. School officials say they are working hard to preserve their core academic mission.

    Not to worry, though. There will be spending increases in some areas.

    There is money in the budget for an annual Native American celebration, coordinators for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and multi-ethnic student affairs programs and for repairs and programs at the Trotter Multicultural Center.

    The beauty of a free market dictates that nobody has to go there, and if they do then they get what they get.

    40 University professors being out of work doesn't bother me in the least.

    You wouldn't believe the deal many of them have.

    Would you believe six figures for 11 hours of work per week?

    I was going to say something about that&#33; I can barely keep track of all of them as an observer, I don&#39;t know how you managed to keep replying to everyone....
