    Academia continues to inflict punishment on itself. Jack Lew got millions for who knows what from NYU, Patraeus got a cushy job with little effort at CUNY, and now Napolitano inflicts punishment on the once proud UC system. Is she going to look and deport illegal profs and students?

    All caused by rich people infested board of trustees and inept CEOs called presidents.

    Homeland Security Secretary will not spend as much money as the last one on big go fast boats that protect us from the Cuban Communists that float over on inner tubes. Big 38' Donzi's with four 350 HP outboards are their boats of choice.  I see them in marinas and boat yards spending even more money after they get down here.  They are extremely obnoxious and ruin the fishing.
