Unintelligible gobblydegook? PR drivel? Arrogant, condescending crapola? Yep, this speech yesterday by UVA Rector Helen Dragas was pretty much all of those things. Feeling the need for a version in plain, blunt, refreshing English? Well, then, click here for Waldo Jaquith’s helpful translation, in which the speech begins, “Dear proles. I’m just like you. Only I was born rich. So trust me, as your relatable better.”  Yep, that about sums it up.

    If the choice for interim president is not someone from the university faculty, someone from the Darden School, someone favored by a couple of Wall Street donors, then I will stand corrected and I will have misjudged Ms. Dragas. (Is that spelled D-R-A-G-A-S or D-R-A-G-O-N?)
