I'm still waiting to see the proof of the "profits" of the public
institutions of higher education.

For a start, tell me about the University of Idaho which is millions
in the hole, or Boise State University, where I'm employed.  If you
tell me where those secret dollars are, I'll gladly go after them for
library materials, and also so that the employees get more of a raise
than the one percent we got this year.  At least that's better than
the zero percent of two of the last four years.
