CONTEST: Suggest a motto for George Washington University : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

The comment from FactFinder about The Paula on Andy Ray's thread below tweaked my curiosity. What is it about The George Washington University, I wondered, that allows them to tolerate someone so utterly and seemingly deliberately clueless as Paula Gordon in their midst?

So I scoured their web site looking for some answers. They do have a Mission Statement. But as far as mission statements go, it is uniquely vapid, as befits an institution chartered by congress. If you had to decide how to run the university based on the mission statement, you'd be utterly clueless.

Just like The Paula. Hmmmmm..... . . . Could be onto something here.

After hours of fruitless searching, I could not find a corporate motto. Nowhere is there a succinct statement of what the University stands for, no light of truth to guide them through dark times such as Y2K.

There, I submit to you, ladies and gentlemen, one and all, THERE is the problem: GWU has no corporate motto!

So as usual, it's up to Pollies to set things straight. Let the debunking juices flow once more. Suggest mottoes for GWU that reflects their apparent mission to the academic community.

When we get enough good candidates, we'll submit them to the president and board of regents for their approval and choice. I'll wager they won't get a finer crop of pithy aphorisms anywhere else in the universe. So herewith is my own suggestion:

George Washington University--Soft Sciences for Soft Heads
