The vast majority of the new funding went toward long-overdue pay increases for faculty and staff after higher education had received virtually no increase in support since 2000. The rest went to legislatively earmarked projects like the University of Mississippi Medical Center,student aid, and the Ayers higher education lawsuit settlement, leaving only $4 million to be used for education and general support.
Facing some $12 million in higher fuel costs and with no help coming from the Legislature or Barbour, the College Board dealt with the financial crunch the old-fashioned way - through yet another tuition increase.

If a young lady decides to have sex with someone and her boyfriend finds out about it; she can cry rape. The unfortunate young man goes to prison, and she has the sympathy of her boyfriend.
If a young lady gets mad at her date she can cry rape and off to prison the young man goes.
Before giving young men a life sentence juries should require more then the young lady's word on his guilt or innocence.

Or the March 4th, 2006 post Schools Overstepping Their Bounds, where a student was threatened with expulsion for posting graphic threats on a personal computer in his own home after school hours and other students were suspended merely for viewing his website.
Now we have a High School Teacher who instructed his students to write a muderous essay (for a drafting class no less). According to the principal it was a "lapse of judgment" on the teachers part. Geez, adults are allowed to have lapses of judgment, but children are suppose to know better??????

Certainly the jury should have questioned the "young lady's" truthfulness when they were told that at first she lied about being dragged to the young man's apartment, changing her story when she was told that parking lot cameras might have captured her going into the apartment willingly.
And rape shield laws should not be used to justify suppressing the fact that the "young lady" had a history of crying rape and falsely accusing young men, because she was too drunk/high to know what she was doing.
Unfortunately the young man who had a promising future is in prison and the "young lady" is back partying free to ruin another young man's life.
