Well it really is welcome home time now., Ivy and the Common Cause in one week.

Sorry to hear about Linda, that will create some additional strain. Maybe we can ask the Foundation for some more “padding” for you!

I thought what has journalism come to, with that headline and then the first paragraph talks about your 5 year old car!

Overall I didn’t think the article was bad and the box , albeit on page 2[*], got out our message on the salaries.

Hang in there my friend!

* [Phares is making reference to a July 12, 2009  LJS article about NU Foundation-delivered excessive perks and lavish benefits bestowed on NU’s Five Chancellors and other NU elites.] Then-Editor Michael Nelson published an LJS front-page headline that read, “NU Foundation Pads [NU] Salaries.”
