Step Right Up

Interesting two page open letter to Obama from higher ed worthies in NYT today (not available online that I can see - will add link if find one) asking for $40-45 billion of the coming stimulus for higher ed infrastructure, research facilities, etc. They say this would be 5% of the package, so they're expecting it to come in at nearly $1 trillion. Can't fault these folks for thinking small! Someone will need to tally up all the requests as groups line up for their piece of the pie, and position their desires as "stimulating."

UPDATE: The WSJ editorial page weighs in with "Shovel-Ready On Campus"
