During my first 4 years of undergraduate work at the University of Georgia, the college probably built two buldings. In my last 2 years at UGA, they probably built 6 new buildings. Since I left Athens 6 years ago, I barely recognize the campus. They've apparently discovered a way to grow parking decks out of the clay.
President Adams may be a tool, but he ain't never seen a capital project he didn't like, secure funding for and see through to completion. I wonder if New Orleans ought to hire him to take the Recovery Czar's vacancy? Replacing an ass who can't get things done with an ass who can get things done is progress, after all.
