Exclusive: an interview with fired Professor James Tracy

~~His administration was characterized to me by one senior FAU faculty member as the most anti-faculty administration in thirty-plus years. This administration has proceeded to discipline or threaten with discipline several faculty who’ve made public pronouncements that Kelly and his inner circle disfavor.~~
This is Mitch Daniels, who, as Governor of Indiana, appointed the members of the Board of Trustees to Purdue University, and began serving as president even before leaving office. He is known as The Blade because, like Kelly, anyone whom he disagrees with is punished. One of the first acts he did as Purdue’s president is to water down the Communications degree…couching it in terms of “you’ll graduate sooner if we don’t have all these messy credits we used to require for the degree…” (paraphrasing).
