The decision is in. Johnson will become UNR’s new president. I am certainly not surprised. It’s impossible to divert or stop a railroad train once it is put in motion. It may be even more important to analysis the actions of each of the thirteen regents in reaching this never in doubt result rather than attempting to predict the future effect on UNR and the entire higher education system caused by its new president Marc Johnson. I want to think about it over the weekend and beginning next Monday I’ll give you my thoughts. One initial thought is that a lot of time and effort was wasted and a lot of money, a hundred thousand dollars, was wasted in this irrelevant exercise.
