How many students has bay neglected to serve over the last fifteen years?

And you saw fit to give them another round of twenty million bucks for,

what’s that you say, making clay pots. . .

Put that in your clay pot and try smoking from that.

Rather, they used these pots to blow smoke at you. . .

The whole emporium of faculty, administrator’s and board members, have for too long been asleep.

RIP, rip van twinkles.

Iconic symbols and ironic symbolization, all entrenched as clear cases of disambiguation?

More oxymoronic than not . . .

that this meeting was held in the midst of so many unbelievers!

Perhaps not.

Realty rather, that boards, administrator’s and faculty have failed to look outside their office windows, their boardroom windows, years ago, and lately,

to take note of the fact that there are three heavy users of timber and forest products within fifty miles of their office portals?

They also failed to recognize the changing world outside their classrooms and hallways as well.

But, that’s not the only industry that bay doesn’t serve, hasn’t served,

and how many students who have been marginalized by those who would rather deem throwing clay or paint on speckled walls and wheels is more important than the disservice done to the greater need of technical education for many more students.

Not withstanding that the college, the board of trustees, administration and faculty have

dropped the technical education ball long ago . .

Three presidents, three boards of trustees and three administrations later, along with untold numbers of meetings and planning sessions . . . there’s still no serious or no proactive approach to technical education at bay. . .

Whatever are they thinking about?

Whatever have they been thinking about ?

It is not without a bit of socratic irony,

that a local, iconic institution of learning,

should host a program,

the topic of which,

of all things,

concerns the technical needs of business and industry, and needs of students to be proactively engaged in technical education. . .

has been, so aptly demonstrated by what it hasn’t accomplished,

than by what it has accomplished

with regard to technical education for our children.
