Reach out

Vision 1920 has been humming the classic hit by the Four Tops:
Now if you feel that you can't go on (can't go on),
Because all of your hope is gone (all your hope is gone),
And your life is filled with much confusion (much confusion),
Until happiness is just an illusion (happiness is just an illusion),
And your world around is crumbling down, darlin',
(Reach out) Come on girl reach on out for me,
(Reach out) Reach out for me,...
This trip down memory lane was prompted by a story in the Eagle
Regents reach out to groups
The embattled chancellor and regents have held several meetings with those concerned about recent actions and the state of shared governance, the idea of gathering the views of those who would be affected by decisions.

"Whether it's true or not, people perceived a real hostility towards faculty and an unwillingness to listen to faculty," said Robert Bednarz, speaker of the Faculty Senate. "It seems to me what people have detected is a change in attitude.
Others haven't come as far
"The effort is laudable ... but I also think at this point there is a lack of trust," Bell-Pedersen said. "There has to be some action behind this effort as well."
This makes us think of another hit by the Four Tops
As I walk this land of broken dreams
I have visions of many things
But happiness is just an illusion
filled with sadness and confusion
