King of comedy

The stuff going on with the president of Oregon State University – ugly skeletons in his closet from his time running Louisiana State University – is no laughing matter.

But this is: Check out what that troublemaker blogger at the U of O has dug up on old King Alexander.

Every professor I know gets spam like this about fake academic conferences with prestigious sounding names, held in popular holiday locations. They accept all papers, have a similarly unreviewed “journal”, and I assume some people try to get reimbursement for them, or try to use them to pad their c.v. – which would be laughable at any reputable university.

What a scam. A scam run by OSU’s new President and his family.

There's got to be more. Dear Lord, let there be more. We don't get enough laughs these days.
