bread and circuses


Imbecile Governor Bat Boy, Rick Scott, wonders what we need with anthropologists or writers or readers or philosophers. You might argue he only wants to intitutionalize what has already happened to education here in America--our universities have become vocational schools and sponsors of professional sports teams. And what's wrong with that? Scott was Chairman and CEO of Columbia/HCA and oversaw the systematic medical fraud the company perpetrated on the federal government. Like all good capitalists these days he's was rewarded, not punished, for his crimes. He was forced to resign with $355 million worth of stock, a $9 million severance package while the company and stockholders paid back over $2 billion in fines--the largest fraud settlement in US history. He was absent the day they covered fraud in ethics class at business school.
