sad to see in a state with a governor that is a leading architect of voter suppression that its flagship university cannot find the wherewithal to offer students easy access to the franchise, but football, gyms and all sorts of other activities are a-okay. trust in this admin continues to…

I found the piece to be well reasoned and written and generously supported with links throughout. Your reply, on the other hand, has no supporting facts, an veers completely off-track with condescending notes about 'what he should learn in grad school' and calling him a scaredy cat.

I appreciate what sale1 is saying, but the nice, constructive approach hasn't moved the admin an inch -despite many attempts- so we also have to recognize that. so far no group, students, staff or faculty have leveraged their considerable power as a unit to force any concessions from the …

covid tests are not 'totally unreliable'. The basic PCR test has a very low false positive rate (usually less than 5%) -and the false negative rate is higher -but this is less the fault of the test than basics of testing (many things can cause a negative but not the other way around) and …

...and freshman Martina Essert nails the landing “Everyone kind of feels like the university doesn’t care about our health or safety, even though it’s on all those posters everywhere,”

This analysis misses the mark on many levels. your central thesis is the very tired 'love it or leave it' argument, which leaves no room for improving this or any other situation. Constructive criticism is provided by those who care about the target community and are trying to make the si…

sky is not falling? the US has already lost 192,000 people in about 7 months. For perspective that is 4X the number of combat fatalities in the Vietnam war (or more than all US combat deaths since the Korean war) or sixty-four 9/11s. All mostly preventable with proper management -see the …

Spot on. The Covid19 plan was 'clearly inadequate', it has now clearly failed, and UGA needs to act aggressively before things get much worse. The lack of transparency and the deflecting of responsibility is embarrassing. Thank you to the Red and Black for the continued quality coverage o…

Faculty making a general statement that 'someone' in their class tested positive does not violate FERPA and I expect the admin knows this. FERPA applies to school records, not individual faculty, and if generalized as stated above completely avoids any possible hit on this privacy law or …
