Earlier I received this e-mail from good ol' Bill Cooper:
Dear University Alumni,
I have decided to step down as President of the University of Richmond effective June 30, 2007, and plan to resume academic pursuits as University Professor. It is a singular privilege to have served as president since 1998. I am grateful for the dedicated efforts of all members of the University community.
Working together, we have achieved a great deal and have made key decisions that will continue to unlock Richmond's full potential. In coming months, I look forward to working to fulfill the aims set forth in our strategic plan and laying the groundwork for future achievements. Let us join together in a spirit of friendship and appreciation for the opportunities we share in serving Richmond.
Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out (in 2007).
My Dad called me tonight to tell me the good news, but I told him that Spydrz beat him to it (I got a voicemail from him while I was in Target buying vittles for tomorrow's road trip to Filthydelphia). He was a little dejected, but I told him that, at the very least, he could simply share in my joy. And we laughed and laughed and laughed...
