I was insomniac last night, dreading the return to campus tomorrow. I truly don’t believe it has come to this. I have not heard a single Georgia administrator’s voice in opposition to this insanity. So this is what it comes down to: they (the State) value money (the almighty Economy) above the lives of students, staff, and faculty. What other conclusion can be drawn here? Am I missing something?

Eric Stoller of Insider Higher Ed argues point-blank: “Keep Campus Closed - What Higher Ed is Too Afraid to Say”:

I would like to encourage everyone to please: take care of yourself. Our government has failed us (not a surprise, really), so it is up to us individuals to be as safe as we can. Try to limit exposure as much as possible, and always take precautions. Be smart. We are on our own, it seems. Do what you need to protect yourself. I know I will be.
