Now Ashton, down to business!

I demand impartial and improved coverage for Tulane University, the largest private employer in New Orleans, the University that spent over $50MM in goods and services from New Orleans companies, paid $4MM in fees to New Orleans government and contributed over $150MM in spending to the local economy from students and out-of-town visitors to Tulane. This is just touching on the economic impact of Tulane on New Orleans. I will add that 30% of all New Orleans residents with associates, bachelors or advanced degrees are graduates of Tulane. And our athletic team's supporters and fans will be growing considerably within the next few years. Our graduates, supporters and fans may or may not read your fish-wrap. Both of us would love to give them reasons to buy.

Our people wrote the story for you already and we expect a three-week, three-part Sunday front page series beginning in two weeks. Or you know where you can find your cup...

They also overlook the service projects that Tulane students provide to the community. I thought I read that dozens of classes include a period of community service as part of the class requirement.

Don't recall hearing that about the school up the river.

AO Sig, you are absolutely correct. The Center for Public Service helps innumerable community projects of all types. And the service projects are an exceptional addition Tulane's curriculum. There are a percentage of students whose deciding factor to attend Tulane was the public service requirement.
