    Apparently the consensus is, so what!

  2. Rumor has it Chalmers is going to replace him.

  3. Karl says:

    We joked about it at the station, but does this open the door for any type of consolidation talks? Maybe some recent council and BOS types could tell us how serious (or not) the talks have been in the past. Seems to me that it’s one of those things that’s smart on the face, but nearly impossible to work out.

  4. Karl’s right. this would be a good time for consolidation talks since Dr. Ford and most of his Central Office staff would have been the ones quite likely not to have survived consolidation.

    Like Brent, I’d vote for Chalmers.
