Drive out city's 'snakes'

  • Follow Letters

David Brond, senior vice president of communications and marketing for Georgia Regents University, says, “Really, it’s not about the signage,” then blah-blahs about what a stellar university we have (“ ‘Augusta’ left off new signs at GRU,” Jan. 14).

Well, it is about the signage. And honesty. And honoring your promises. And employing people of ethical character.

Where is Augusta’s leadership? Stand up and say “no!” I live in Aiken County, so I don’t have a dog in the fight. I just can’t handle the way the name “Georgia Regents University” was foisted on Augusta, and now the failure to honor the “compromise” made by GRU President Ricardo Azziz in October 2012.

Augusta has poisonous snakes in its midst. Light the torches and drive them out. The character “Gru” in the Despicable Me movies had minions. It seems Azziz does, too. Chase his miserable butt back to wherever he came from.

I believe we need to worry

I believe we need to worry about the bigger snakes, I mean pythons up there in D.C. We just need to get rid of these in Augusta first!

So logical

But we end up with an amateur surrealistic painter who sees contradictory conditions of reality as he comes up with false juxtapositions believing people can see Augusta in Georgia Regents without it actually being there.

Azziz could walk in his office naked and David Brond would inform us he was working on a level far above the average person. If anyone dared to say the emperor had no clothes he would find himself cleaning out the puke in the bus Azziz uses for private parties at Savannah Rapids Pavilion.

Excellent letter by Robert

Excellent letter by Robert Titus.
Riverman: Ditto!
Now would be a good time too for everyone to refresh their memory of the letter written by Dr. Shirley Kenney (former interim president of Augusta State) upon her departure; in that letter she nailed it.
The big snake is Gov. Deal; he has a lot of cleaning house to do in the least two positions new administrators.....

Calling St. Patrick

Sir, having driven all the snakes out of Ireland can you not float across the pond and help us drive them out of the CSRA?

As slimy and as slippery as they are,

they can't be snakes, they've gotta be eels.
