    BYE, JOHN!


        The single most important – and difficult – task facing the next president of Franklin and Marshall College will be to figure out how to pay for all of John Fry’s grandiose and expensive projects. As the Pennsylvania Academy of Music learned the hard way, wishful thinking does not pay the bills. And the financial state of F&M’s endowment fund has been ignored in the media.
        In addition, John Fry’s successor will be forced to deal with the immense amount of public animosity created by F&M’s actions over the past few years. Whatever the merits of F&M’s many projects may be, the way they were forced upon the public has generated a deep distrust of the college among many local residents.
        I hope and pray that the next president of F&M at least has a local sensibility, someone who understands what Lancaster really is.

        Well said, Artie!  I would just like to add:  good riddance! 

        Good Morning Denver! I know there was a great deal of concern about my well-being so I will put your fears at ease.

        I crawled out from under my rock, took a walk outside my cave, saw a robin, went to the gym for a great workout, and am now leaving to continue growing my successful business.

        I wish you all a fantastic day!

    This comment into this site bright and early this morning from Humpty Dumpty under “READER’S COMMENTS” below.

        Why?  Why me?  Humpty set the comments on fire here yesterday, angering almost everyone and keeping my friend Hill from her Farmville tasks!  Here’s hoping he will actually do some work and keep his fingers away from the keyboard today! 

         Oh, and good morning to you too, Humpty!

    Please check back later today…

    1. Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
      Humpty Dumpty’s Angie afterall,
      All the Denver hung like horses,
      And all the Turkey Hill men
      Couldn’t put Angie together again!

      A rich lonely widow decided that she needed another man in her life so she placed an ad, which read something like this:


      1) WON’T BEAT ME UP
      2) WON’T RUN AWAY

      For several months, her phone rang off the hook, her doorbell was ringing constantly, she received tons of mail, etc., all to no avail: none seemed to match her qualifications.

      Then one day the doorbell rang yet again. She opened the door to find a man with no arms and no legs lying on the welcome mat.

      Perplexed, she asked, “Who are you? And what do you want?”

      “Hi,” he said, ” your search is over, for I’m the man of your dreams. I’ve got no arms so I can’t beat you up and no legs so I can’t run away.”

      “Well, then,” she said, “what makes you think that you’re so great in bed?”

      To which he replied,….. “Well, I rang the doorbell, didn’t I?

    2. Well well, another intellectual from Denver assuming to know my true identity and vainly attempting humor.

      Wrong again.

      Another one bites the dust.

    3. Thanks!!! But I’m not from Denver.

      What does dust taste like? Never had it. I’ve never really been around a significant amount of dust to bite, have you?
