University of Missouri System—Self-Destructs

For John, BLUFThe inmates are running the asylum.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

"Bonfire of the Academy".  The sub-headline is "As liberal adults abdicate, the kids take charge on campus."

Somewhere in this article is a discussion of how the hunger strike by Grad Student Jonathan Butler against the cutbacks in University Health Care was based on an inability to read the fine print.  Per the WSJ it is verboten by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PP&ACA).

Less noted in the news coverage is that an August posting on the website of the university’s division of graduate studies explains in detail that the health-insurance cutbacks are the explicit result of the Affordable Care Act.  ObamaCare’s regulations forbid employers, such as universities, from paying for their grad students’ health insurance.  Another case of progressives eating their own.
As we know, President Tim Wolfe resigned.

And, fortunately, so did Professor Melissa Click.

So, just who is running the zoo out at Mizzou?

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.

  Cynic that I am, I am figuring Mr Wolfe got a golden parachute.
  Here is the part I don't get.  Ms Click, ironically, from the Journalism School, was trying to run off a journalist, and The Washington Post makes fun of Republicans who find it wrong.
