We’ve been dealing with some heavy duty issues lately, so how about we lighten up as the week comes to an end?

Next week, the guy who brought us the glories of “On Your Side” news at Channel 3 takes over the communications reins at University of Memphis.

So, what do you think this could mean for our university?

Can Provost Ralph Faudree add about about 80 pounds, throw his jacket over his shoulder and become a watchdog for higher education? Or can he rise to the challenge of saying “I” every other sentence.

Can the university’s objective researchers work their own religious beliefs into their reports so they can be “Wisely” on our side?

Can more sensational verbiage replace the academic language of President Shirley Raines? After all, those publish or perish threats sound gang-related.

You can do better than we can. What will be your tip-off that the University of Memphis is now on your side?
