USC Morning Buzz: Nothing Beats Quality Yacht Time

Rick Caruso must feel good about letting USC president Carol Folt do her job because he spent Tuesday night hosting the U.S. women’s soccer team on his $100 million yacht for a trip on the Hudson River.

I guess it’s better publicity for Caruso than hosting Olivia Jade, the daughter of Lori Loughlin, on his yacht as the College Admissions scandal broke.

But is the Richie Rich routine appropriate when you are chair of the Board of Trustees of a university that paid UC San Diego $50 million last week in damages and agreed to pay some of the victims of George Tyndall $215 million?

On top of that there are Caruso’s aspirations of becoming Mayor of Los Angeles. Maybe less yacht time, buddy.

  • Below is a photo of USC fans taking a bus from Detroit to Ann Arbor on Sept. 27, 1958, to face Michigan.

Look at how fans dressed for a college football game.

The Wolverines led 20-7 entering the fourth quarter but Rex Johnston scored on a 66-yard run and Tom Maudlin threw a 36-yard TD pass to Hillard Hill that cut the lead to one point. But the Trojans were unsuccessful on the conversion attepmpt and suffered a close loss.

    1. So 22, anybody that doesn’t agree with you is either an American hater or gay?

      I personally don’t buy “my country, right or wrong” patriotism; I like to think for myself.

      1. So Owns, you couldn’t get accepted to Westwood High because you flunked Reading Comprehension?

        You never have thought for yourself in your life, you stupid preachy ruin lib.

        All you do is spew your daily Media Matters Fake News Talking Points. How’s that working for you?

        You took the “Dissent Is Patriotic” bumper sticker off your 1989 Camry on January 20th 2009 and put it back 9PM November 8th 2016.

      1. gt — As a prosecutor I always got the idea of people doing dumb stuff to advance their own self interest. I’ll never get why a majority of the electorate would vote for folks who promise to do things that will interfere with their self interest. But that’s the way it seems to be going in California….

      2. MG, my friend, who is it that you think hates America? America was built on protest.
        I have too much respect for you and gt to get into a debate that goes nowhere and instead want to listen to what you have to say.

      3. Hi Arturo — I respect you, too. Very much. And, like you, I don’t appreciate it when people assume that everybody who disagrees with them is made up of different DNA molecules. But it leaves me cold when folks call Trump a “Fascist.” [btw Bolton probably IS a fascist —and the sooner he’s out, the better]. Fascism is a terrible political philosophy. I recall reading that leading Fascist artists in the ’30’s said “art should portray the beauty of speed and strength and war.” For all of his many faults, Trump doesn’t fall into the category of “Fascist.” He believes in economic nationalism. Those who call him or our present government “Fascist” need a history lesson. And, yes, calling people you disagree with “Fascists” exhibits something pretty close to hatred for them —and calling our present government “Fascist” demonstrates a hatred for the electorate.

      4. MG:

        Well said, but would add one point that is on the one hand academic, but on the other I think vital…

        It all depends on terms/definitions, and (you know this better than any of us I suspect) intent…what intent is the term being invoked for? Is it being used as a label/attack? Is it being used in the technical sense? Technically, all of our elected officials are…because it originally only meant government practiced so as to diminish or eliminate distinctions between government and the business/financial sector…in practice, of course, it turned into something very different (and continues to be practiced for these same nefarious purposes)…

        Unfortunately, in the present, it is almost invariably used to suggest that someone is a practitioner of the latter…a simple, virtue-posturing/signaling label, thrown about as a frisbee at the grand socio-political picnic…

      5. MG, thanks for the response. For all of his faults, I wouldn’t call Trump a Fascist; I don’t think anyone in our gov’t could ever get away with being one. I will just leave it at that.

  1. Folt should reform the BOT from its current level of 60 extremely large donors to a much smaller group who are committed to restoring the university and who don’t necessarily have the deepest pockets. Identify those who know something about university management and governance and who appreciate the history of SC, and work with them. I’m sure that Caruso would understand if he was politely asked to step down, given the time that his mayoral campaign will be requiring.

        Would like to add some David Bowie lyric, but given the clime of the times, could too easily be misconstrued see supra…so rather than in full, will just add the back of the stanza (and I envision it being spoken to the Mule) “…just you shut your mouth…she says…”

    Typical crap from a tiny, whiny, hyper-aggressive infection.

    Sadly, there’s no education in the second kick of a Mule.
