Arizona Mentality vs Democracy

Richard Blankenburg

Arizona State University has invited America´s new President Barack Obama to be the speaker of their commencement, however, the University determined that they would not confer the customary honorary doctorate on President Obama because of ´his lack of experience´; it is an obvious affront to the President and humiliating.

I am not an alumnus of Arizona State University but I am an alumnus of ASU´s rival school, the University of Arizona, earned Ed. D. 1966. When I read of ASU belittling the Democratic President of the United States, Barack Obama, by inviting him to commencement but denying him a customary honorary doctorate for ´lack of experience´, I was hardly surprised because of a traumatic experience I had at U of A.
