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.
