Remember how excited Nick was about President Clinton's pardon of Marc Rich. They were heros and martyrs and Prrsident Clinton pardoned them. Yet Sarah Jane Olson, Pat Forcia and Norman Hsu remain in jail.

Correctman's comment is incomprehensible. Nevertheless, shouldn't these charities also consider returning the money to the people who were defrauded? After all, these organizations received the cash under false pretenses. They are not at fault, but they should not be entitled to a donor's ill-gotten gains.

Petters was the worst thing to happen to Polaroid since digital imaging.

Nick is earning his place in the Democrat hall of fame the old fashioned way...he's earning it one poorly written, inchoate commentary at a time.

Some real off the wall comments from those who have nothing better to do that hang on to dead agenda and dead/overused/abused words.

Funny how if it is something that Nicholie supports that they "should" keep it, but remove the offending name. If they want to teach morals and ethics in institutions of "higher learning", then they should lead by example and tear those buildings down. There should be NO ILL GOTTEN GAIN from illegal activities. Just like the New Gophers stadium is being built with ill gotten gains (true heirs of the Prior lake reservation are being denied access to it), that should not be built, unless of course it is a political stunt by the crooks to buy good press in the liberal eyes of Minnesota....

That makes a lot of sense. Let's tear down perfectly good buildings and have tax payers rebuild them. If we're going that route, we better start with the Foshay Tower. Stupid!

The Augsburg donor did donate tainted money nor did he do anything illegal. If Augsburg wanted to remove the name they should have returned the money. The Petter's recipients should return their tainted money.

The articles just keep getting dumb and dumber. I wonder if Coleman is taking the same "goofy" pills that Garrison Keillor is taking?
