4 Pennsylvania Universities Whose Funds Were Held 'Hostage' May Soon See the Money

The leaders of Pennsylvania's four state-related universities apparently will soon receive about $700-million in state funds that had been included as part of a budget agreement last fall. Gov. Edward G. Rendell had been withholding that money and other appropriations while the legislature wrangled over a separate bill to expand gambling -- and raise much-needed revenue. The presidents of the University of Pittsburgh and Lincoln, Pennsylvania State, and Temple Universities had sent a letter today to the governor and Democratic lawmakers, protesting that their institutions "should not be held hostage" to the gambling bill. Late tonight, the state House of Representatives voted to approve the universities' funds, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Complaining about fraud when you rely on force is kinda funny.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

That was addressed to Volkov.

Almost as funny as accepting a state handout while complaining about its existence.
