Driven to Distraction

Question of the Week

Q: Is it possible to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear?

A: If you charge enough for it then people will think that you have!

(This also applies to university presidents and football coaches..)

Not coincidentally, the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers lost their opener yesterday to Bowling Green. As in academics, it's hard to be humble at BigU once you've bought into greatness.
