Why would I stay in Wisconsin?

For all my UWSP friends and colleagues, for neighbors and fellow citizens of Stevens Point and Wisconsin: here’s why we need to act on what’s happening in the state. Ryan Kernosky was a Chancellor’s Leadership Award recipient this past year. He and I have had our differences over shared governance, but he’s a guy I respect and I hope blogs more. Mostly, I hope he stays in the state, but I can’t blame him for looking outside. Do we want him to be one more on the trains of talented people leaving the station? I don’t, because I bought his beer last time and now it’s his turn. I don’t want to have to go to some other state and collect by drinking some other state’s beer. (Reposted with Ryan’s permission.)
