Hopelessly Bad Opinion Piece...

Margaret Soltan give a second opinion on the recent pitiful effort by President Bruininks to justify foot dragging at the University of Minnesota. He has an Op-Ed in the Sunday Tribune entitled, can you believe it: "Transparency at the U."
Hopelessly bad opinion piece … in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune from the president of hopelessly conflicted University of Minnesota. He had to say something; the newspaper’s been all over the many ongoing conflict of interest scandals in the UM medical school. 

What he’s produced, though, is too lacking in content for SOS to take hold of anything from it for discussion purposes. The piece makes no reference to particular COI cases — a basic requirement under the circumstances. 

If you’re in the mood for meaningless reassurance and groundless self-congratulation, go to it.
