    The sale would give the school $6 million per year to spend on other programs, but has drawn significant opposition from professors concerned about the impact this could have on the college and on the environment.

    OK, we will cut professor’s jobs and salaries then! Starting with the forestry department, bwahaha!

    The colleges are so hungry for cash that they will sell every asset and consume it before they will deign to cut costs. It is sort of like a scene of punishment from for gluttons in Dante’s Inferno, doomed to eat their own bodies but unable to control their appetites.
