Forget the name, move on

That Georgia Health Sciences University President Ricardo Azziz is devious has been established. That the Board of Regents is dug in also has been established. What’s left? All parties must move on.

Excellence is not conveyed by the school’s name anyway. If regional and national prestige is to come to this university, it will be earned, and it can be neither rushed nor hindered. The name of the institution will have almost no bearing in the matter.

Forget Princeton and the University of Memphis. Think Mayo, Johns Hopkins, Duke and Emory. Score one for Azziz and the regents, and move on to new topics.

Everytime there is an contriverisal issue

to be resolved, the answer is just MOVE ON. Trash history, both good and bad, that have contributed to whatever is going on and just MOVE ON. We are "Living In the Moment" and only the present is important. Bull squat. It is brainwashing at its best. It is manipulation and totalitarian dogma at its most sinister state. MCG has a long history. ASU has a long history. Both in the City of Augusta. We laud the museum on Reynolds Street willing ignoring history in the streets outside.
