The word about LSU’s financial woes, particularly the threat of academic bankruptcy, is now national news. From the Boston Globe to Bloomberg News to the Houston Chronicle to Al Jazeera America, the news is out that LSU is on the ropes.

First, LSU President F. King Alexander issued a statement on Wednesday, in which he said, “Based on the current status of the budget debate, we have decided to begin contingency planning for exigency as many of our campuses may be impacted, as well as other campuses across the state.”

Bobby Jindal and the stubbornly pliant Republican super-majority in the legislature continue to be in complete denial. The state’s flagship university is imminently imperiled. Its newly-minted president, F. King Alexander, is, prudently, preparing to file for academic exigency, the equivalent of bankruptcy, in order to insulate the damage as much as possible.

harlemToday America is in a very dangerous place. It is led by a racially divisive President who thrives on discord and grievance. The control of his Justice Department has just transferred from one radical to another. The President’s response to racially charged incidents, such as the arrest of Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr. in Cambridge, Massachusetts or the Trayvon Martin tragedy, indicates he is a man who is a community organizer at heart who sides with protesters and not police.
