74 college students, journalists and assorted others
went into the chancellors' office looking for him.
Not there. In the regents' room? nope.
Consensus was gotten quickly to go find him at 1:30
where he won't be able to duck them anymore.
An "ask the chancellor," face to face with the
corporate media. Or is it just Panther television?
Remains to be seen. Channels 10 and 12 were present,
NPR was there, and other Panther TV reporters were
present as well.
More later as this story develops.
