First, let's stop calling these "hearings" Wonder hearings. They are really about governance and accountability at UH, the Wonder affair being more indicative of what is going on with UH. If the legislature were truly interested in what is going on at UH they would call the President of the Senant and the Speaker of the House and ask them why they were calling in the UH President, who they have no authority over, and telling her what to do. Ask the UH President to disclose all of the incients where legislatore and the Executive Branch ordered to instructed UH staff, management, and regents to do things a cretain way, or else. UH has never been autonomouse, they ahve alwasy been a pawn in a game played by politicians who wanted to place their friends allies into comfy jobs, and have the University run in a way which benefits them. The Wonder affair is indicative of a system id disarray that will never be fixed if the legislature and the governor don't stop meddling, and Regents with the backbone and ethics to resiste political pressure, hold staff accountable, and are willing to enact policies that better the university as a whole are put in place. These Stevie Wonder hearings are just shining a bad light on UH administrators while the real culprits are hiding in the shadows or worse yet, actually asking the questions.

People also need to realize that Kim and Donovan are friends and they clearly communicated what was going to be said prior to the actual hearing. Donovan was wronged, no question, and UH leaders totally screwed up time and again, but I think Kim is using these hearings more to clear Donovan's name, make herself look good and make Greenwood look bad than anything else. If she wants to keep any credibility for herself, she better not brush aside testimony, like she did with Greenwood already, that state politicians interfere with operations at UH. Because it DOES happen.

The start time is 1:00 p.m. again! They need to start earlier. The first Presidential Debate is being held the next day. We don't want the hearing to run into that event.
