This video is making the Missouri Southern rounds today.
Watch it and then come back to us.
O.K., you back? Great.
Now. Where is the fucking money coming from?
New residence halls? We counted three, including a “family apartment” one. A new academic building? They haven’t been able to even do the renovations to Reynolds Hall that are dreamed of here.
Is this video slick and cool and would we like all of this? YES!! Will we get ANY of it? Unlikely.
This isn’t a “Master Plan,” it is a “Master Dream.” And dreaming big is good. The U should dream big. But dreams like this with no fathomable way to make them even approach achievement is idiotic.
And to present this to the public at a time when people are so skittish about jobs and raises are not coming and such is just plain obnoxious. This is propaganda, pure and simple.
Go ahead, call us the naysaying, anonymous cowards. We hear that all the time. But when a shovel goes in the ground on a new building, we will rip off our mask and get in line for the Kool-Aid. Until then, put up or shut up.
Also, when RTV speaks of Missouri Southern’s history it makes us vomit in our mouths. First of all, he has been here a shorter time than a lot of seniors. Second, we were once located at Fourth and ByerS. Not Fourth and Byer. Way to go, douche.
Second, tell the voice over dude that it is Hearnes Hall, not Harns Hall. Jesus. This is basic shit. Even Goebbels got the names right.
And aren’t “Welcoming” and “Inviting” virtually the same thing?
And “these changes won’t happen overnight?” Shit. What happened overnight is we spent God knows how much on this video wish list. Show us how to get there. THAT will be a master plan.
Right now the only thing at the end of this master is bation.
