Late last week, OU officially inaugurated Joseph Harroz as the next president of the University of Oklahoma.
A proud minion of the disgraced David Boren, his role will be to continue the fine OU presidential tradition of serving, protecting and prying money away from the Oklahoma ruling class and its wealthy elites, and making sure the University remains a somewhat suitable education destination for their kids who aren’t smart enough to make it at more prestigious out-of-state institutions.
