Q&A with the President:
Why go to Franklin University of
I don't give a d@mn.
Question: Did you
think you would be president of the school for 34 years when you
I have been president of this university for 37 years, Jack@ss.
Father was a real nut job faking his death and sh!t, all the d@mn time.
Hell, I didn't know if I was coming or going. I ain't putting my
kids through that.
Question: A lot of the students have a problem with you
being a Republican.
I believe in what they believe and if you don't like
it, then you can get out. I don't tell them they have to agree.
Question: You haven't
worked at the school fulltime since 1980. Is that true?
I hire people and trust them to run the shop. No one ever said I
was a micromanager.
say you just don't care anymore. Is that true?
Let me pose for a picture.
Then you'll see.
Question: What is
your position on diseases?
I am against them.
If you could be any kind
of insect, what would it be?
What kind of question is that
student newspaper is a N0 SPIN ZONE Dr. President. Now answer the
Stop hitting yourself.
Question: OUCH! STOP THAT!
Faggot says what.
Question: I can't
believe you did that! Are you flipping me off?
I did what needed to be
done. Now get back to your questions; I will expel your @ss.
Question: What is your key
Really good lawyers.
Question: We hear rumors about you selling the school.
Anything to it?
I don't think so. It makes
more money now that it is online than ever before. Generally, I
have kept it open to leverage our tax situation. I never thought
it would make money.
Question: Is one of your
middle names really
Yes, J@ck@ss. I done told
you that my father was a difficult man with a strange sense of humor.
Maybe he was delusional. After all he was a Democrat. Sh!t,
I have always wondered that. I asked him several times and he said
that it was between either Rumpelstiltskin or J@ck@ss. Hell, that
University of Central Kentucky. What is next?
Well, online means world
wide. Online means a lot more money.
Hell, it has been fun, I made a lot of good friends. Now it is
about the money. I ain't going to lie to you. Father wanted
to train the slow people that couldn't cut it in a real college; I think
we still do that. Sometimes, I feel bad about charging so much,
but then I remember that we are the last shot for most of these
students. IF they can't make it here, their dream is over.
We are really the only show in town. Hell, it isn't like your
going to put this interview the website. It is just for the school
