$29.4 Million

That is what is costs to buy a school. That is in essence what the Jordan family has done. A family that has never been to CSU Fresno but know a retired professor decided to donate $29.4 million dollars to the Ag Sciences and Technology school. Now it is being renamed. Is it obvious to anyone else that this family/trust was just shopping for a legacy? Fresno State, I guess that this means we all know what you are and that we are just settling on a price.

The money will probably do some good (if we can keep it away from the lawsuit settlement payouts) but the whole thing leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Don't tell me this is how it is done because I don't care. I don't know why it bothers me so but it does.

Tea Party Time!

The Tea Party is coming up tomorrow! I found out that it is totally free to attend. The SaveMart Center isn't even charging for parking! Also, there are going to be bounce houses and face painting for the kids. I was a little shocked that the Bee said that organizers are expecting over 1000. Only? So go check it out and let's get the numbers up!
