Ouy, I bet they move this one to Carracas

Check out this news story: Ave Maria to take over Nicaraguan college

The operative quote is this:
Once the university takes over, the college expects the curriculum will be streamlined and new programs will be offered, such as a pre-theologate program.

Hmmm. Torgo wonders if that "streamlining" will be anything like the streamlining done to institutions these destroyers got their wretched hands on in Michigan.

Too bad nobody told them the new programs will be offered in another country 4 years from now and that the guts of the acquired will most likely be fleeced and left for dead on the roadside on Mr. Monaghan's ambitions.
