I'll be damned, Detroit's liberal fish wrap made me giggle today.
A group of Occupy U-M protesters took over Thursday's University of Michigan Board of Regents meeting seconds after President Mary Sue Coleman started it.
Holy crap! Could it be the #OccuTurds are figgerin' things out?

$361/sq ft? I don't want to hear whining about tuition hikes ever again.
After receiving approval from the University of Michigan Board of Regents today, U-M is planning to purchase a .14-acre parcel near the Law Quad by the end of the month.

We have students unionizing at U of M.
The University of Michigan's Mary Sue Coleman now reaps the sowing, as the regents' meeting at a Dearborn locale brought about the now possible unionization of graduate student researchers. Coleman opposed the move, yet the regents voted to allow it with a 6-2 vote.
As the infestation of labor expands into the student part of a government subsidized and over fed organization like the University of Michigan, it should be noted that the two dissenting votes were the only voices of reason available. A release last night from the Republican party of Michigan reads:
LANSING - Michigan Republican Party Chairman Bobby Schostak praised Republican-nominated University of Michigan Regents Andrea Fischer Newman and Andrew C. Richner today for their recent votes opposing a resolution to allow the school's graduate researchers to unionize.
That third paragraph is the ringer. This was not on the agenda for the May 19, 2011 meeting in Dearborn.
Classic progressives and their tactics. Wonderful.
A little more below.
