The Wallow Style of Leadership
Reeves, Thomas C.
Academic Questions, v16 n4 p26-30 Sep 2003
It was important, in selecting a new chancellor for Damp Valley State, to find someone to preserve and cultivate the university's reputation as a fourth-rate backwater. Founder Throckmorton P. Wallow would have been pleased with the choice, by a painfully diverse and politically correct search committee, of Estralita Gonzalez, who had formerly distinguished herself by graduating fully 9 percent of athletes as president of Exitium Tech. Thomas C. Reeves' parody, sadly, hits all too close to affairs in the present-day academy.
