Rewriting History At The University of Minnesota or,

There He Goes Again...

See: Look Who's Already Rewriting History

Those who forget the lessons of history
are doomed to repeat it.

Who controls the past controls the future.
Who controls the present controls the past.

From the Daily:

What's distinctive about the University of Minnesota, compared to many other universities in our society, is that we were chartered initially as a research [sic] and land grant university, if you look at the early history of the University. President Bruininks (10/22/08)

I think that President Bruininks has misconstrued the original land grant mission of the university and would invite him to step outside Morrill Hall and have a look at what is written on the facade of Northrup:

The University of Minnesota

Founded in the faith that people are ennobled by understanding

Dedicated to the advancement of learning and the search for truth

Devoted to the instruction of youth and the welfare of the state
