(We’re not saying the two are related, but…) UW-Green Bay Prof. Emeritus David Littig deserves a shout-out for his well-chosen words to Fox 11 News regarding a proposed reworking of the UW System’s 111-year-old mission statement that found its way into Gov. Scott Walker’s biennial budget proposal. The veteran political scientist warned Wednesday against tampering with the cherished ‘Wisconsin Idea’ of serving people across the state in all walks of life. “He is really totally attacking in many ways the core principal of the University of Wisconsin System,” Littig said. Litting wasn’t the only person criticizing the amendments, of course, and by the time the interview aired, Walker aides were already walking back the changes as a “drafting error.” To see the Fox 11 story.
