T + 3 and counting

The report to the President of the University of Illinois from the Vice President for Research was due on March 15.  That's three days ago.  Many are waiting.

The report is to supposed to evaluate the circumstances surrounding the use of the University's name and reputation in support of a private medical equipment supplier.  Recall that the VP was charged to "conduct a methodical assessment of policies, guidelines, procedures and practices, and where corrective changes are required we will take the appropriate action."

I guess he needed some extra time, but it's hard to understand why.  Maybe they'll explain that, too, when the report is issued.  Who knows: Maybe people are just distracted by the pending first round in the basketball tournament!
