Yeah, the Animal Liberation Front took responsibility for the Anthony Hall firebomb & mink farm damage, but it was the Earth Liberation Front who claimed responsibility for torching Ag Hall (now Morrill) on New Year’s Eve 1999. Sidenote: For all the fear globally about the possibility of terrorism that night (because of Y2K-inspired acts and panic), the MSU Ag Hall fire was the only place in the world where there actually was a terrorist act conducted.
usually the longer the name, the more f'd up it is.

Not always. I like visiting the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations.
Conversely, it was a pretty crappy existence for the flying monkeys in Oz.

Too many Liberation Fronts to keep straight.  At least the Palestinians made theirs an organization (or whatever the O stands for) instead of a front.

I, for one, am determined to make certain that my backside stays very much unliberated.

It seems like there are many who think that MSU should conduct an open search for the new President, as detailed in the State News.

https://statenews.com/article/2019/02/perspectives-on-closed-vs-open-msu-presidential-search

Seriously, how many qualified candidates do you think would want to go through an open search process; presuming they all currently employed at another institution in a top level position. While I understand calling for transparency, in this case I think it would severely limit the number and quality of the candidates who would be willing to interview.

Last line in the story makes me think General MSU thread - Page 12 4113017228
The official said Wilson will be named president of a major university. Prior to joining the Trump administration Wilson was president of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. wrote:

If she does become President of MSU - just remember you heard it from me first, and on tSwill before anywhere else.
One of tswill twitter posters feel free to tweet this pure speculation out to the masses.
