"...don't believe something because an "expert" is saying it. Believe it because of the evidence."
Ok, if we're sharing unsubstantiated (but plausible) rumors -- when Brian mentions the EMU/Ypsilanti faction that's against Rodriguez, what is it? Is a regent also involved?
FWIW, unless the rumors are incredibly salacious or damaging to the privacy of others, I'm all for them to be aired publicly. Sunlight has a way of dissipating the fog.
