Amid all the wailing and moaning about funds that issue forth from Annapolis, I find the University of Maryland's funding priorities to be rather misplaced, to say the least. They have allocated $15,000.00 to combat - wait for it! - drums and trumpets please! ... NON-INCLUSIVE LANGUAGE!
Such are the funding priorities of the former 1960s hippies that are now university officials and tenured professors. Whereas they once occupied and blocked Route 1 (an annual ritual at one time), now they work the same mischief from their offices.
Does $15k sound like a trifle? Dear Maryland citizens, the UofMD is a state institution, funded in part by our tax dollars (that's why we pay "in-state" rates when we attend). This "program" is an abysmal waste of our tax dollars.
