          Yeah...Grand Forks residents tend to just watch porn at high volumes with their windows open so the elementary school kids can see it when they are at recess. Then they spit on cops when arrested!

          (front page story from the Herald the last time I was there)

          The waitresses also tend to do shots and smoke cigarettes while very very pregnant!

              • Iowa legislature silently ramming through a bill to cap travel nurse pay.

                https://www.tiktok.com/t/ZTLJTxKtP/

                No discussion of nurse hours, patient count, or anything that would actually help nurses. But let's cap travel nurse pay because we can't be letting someone get their proper self worth.

                  Spending every night at Red Pepper leads to spending every morning on the toilet. And that's before you factor in all the cheap beer.

                    I think the best part of that story is that the principal actually has a breathalyzer in his office, ready to use.
                    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                      Not his first time at the rodeo, clearly. Though I bet he was thinking he'd catch a few students sneaking off to the boys' room to hit the flask, and not one of his faculty members. :-/

                      • Well it wasn't the teachers first violation...and it seems they kept it off his record so not the brightest bulb.

                        Does NoDak have a Teacher's Union...because if so he didn't need to resign there is almost always union protection if you claim to have a substance abuse problem. (negotiating union contracts teaches ya stuff!) Most places can't fire you if you say you have a problem.

                          A threat of dueling party conventions to choose a US presidential nominee this weekend. Accusations of adultery, corruption and incompetence. A barrage of social media attacks and a police investigation. The Michigan Republican Party is in turmoil https://reut.rs/3uUUxTI
                          The problem with ousting the crazy is, the crazy never goes away! Michigan GOP is like a NASCAR crash!

                          • Proposed Mississippi bill would close three universities. If it were to pass, it would likely include the Mississippi U for Women (which has men enrolled!), and two HBCUs between Alcorn, MVSU, and Delta St. There's obviously a racial element to this specific story given it's Mississippi and dealing with HBCUs, but MVSU only has around 2000 enrolled and an endowment of just 3.6 million.

                            I could see this conversation coming to other states as well. In Michigan, there are 15 public universities. In the past ten years, only Michigan, MSU, and MTU saw increases in enrollment. Grand Valley, Oakland, Wayne St, and UM-Dearborn saw slight declines between 0-10%. And then it gets really bad. NMU, Ferris and SVSU were over 25% declined, EMU was at a third, and CMU and Lake State are at almost 40%. CMU recently closed an entire neighborhood of dorms and Lake State is especially dire due to their low enrollment to begin with. A 40% drop leaves them with only 1400 students.

                            • We will definitely be having that conversation in Michigan within the next decade. I do not see how 15 public universities can be sustainable past 2030 unless we can start to reverse our population outflow (not likely until climate change forces the issue in a few decades).

                              When the time comes, I wonder if MTU would ever consider re-absorbing LSSU and turning it back into MTU-Soo like it was in the 60s.

                                How much does having a satellite campus actually save versus closing it? There's still a campus and all the costs associated with having classes at that campus to deal with.

                                In the UP, I would think Tech and NMU would survive. Tech is keeping stable enrollment and I don't think you could leave the UP without a non-engineering school.
