It seems I found the Thursday before last’s editorial in the Chicago Tribune too boring to read carefully.
But the Idaho Statesman reminded me of one interesting paragraph:
“We can think of a strong candidate (for a successor):Boise State University PresidentBob Kustra,
who is a former Illinois lieutenant governor and state senator. Kustra is a successful college president and he navigated Illinois politics with extremely high integrity. Illinois’ premier public university will need a president who can handle the politics without succumbing to this state’s breathtakingly corrupt political culture.”
For those new to to the political arena, Kustra was the Establishment candidate for U.S. Senator when he was upset by Lake County’s State Rep. Al Salvi.
The graduation rate in six years for Boise State is 28%.
On this, McHenry County Blog scooped the Tribune on June 27th.
