    “The Deadly Sound of Silence at Belknap”

    Re: the UofL Hospital merger shenanigans–
    Why does UofL operate in secrecy so much? What does it continually seek to hide? Is this not repugnant in a supposedly free, open society (as true universities are meant to be)? It appears that UofL is a campus filled with cockroaches that live best in the dark. But what else is new at Belknap? And will it ever stop?

    I can tell you this much for sure: Irv Maze is the straightest arrow I’ve ever known and will call it exactly like he sees it. To those who have known or worked with Irv, that has been both refreshing and sometimes difficult, but he NEVER lets politics get in the way. How you or the press spin the outcome is an unknown, but you can bet the farm that Irv will do exactly what he thinks is right.
