Leeburn's mea culpa

Geriatric Fisticuffs Update: University System Regent, University Embarassment, and weekend pugilist Don Leebern has apologized for beating the unshirted hell out of his neighbor in Oconee County's tough Crystal Hills neighborhood.

Unfortunately, the apology was not robust enough to extend to his misappropriation of the University logo for wine sales by his liquor company, violating NCAA extra benefit rules by squiring his wife lady friend's gymnastics team to New York, or chairing the search committee that hired Michael Adams.

EDIT: Going forward we'll spell it Leebern. I had to leave the headline as Leeburn b/c folks were linking to the article with the improper spelling. Otherwise, they would just get a page error. PWD

Heh. Note that Leebern's apology was directed to his fellow Regents -- not to the guy whose ass he kicked. w/r/t his "victim," that's like sticking the knife in deeper. It's like a negative apology.

Of course, if I were in Leebern's place, my apology to Bentley would've gone something like, "I'm really and truly sorry . . . that you got your ass handed to you by a 68-year-old man."
