Tampa Tribune: Cringing at USF bonuses

University of South Florida president Judy Genshaft must know that appearances can be as important as reality. Surely, she knew this when she handed out hefty bonuses to four top staff members — after the university had slashed millions from the budget, frozen salaries and ordered big layoffs. Three of those staff members report directly to the president. During these hard economic times, everyone at USF should share the pain. Genshaft, along with her advisers, deserve all the criticism they are getting for this insensitive move.
