Random Philosophy Major requests release from VCU
(Richmond, VA--May 2, 2015) Virginia Commonwealth University's Monroe Park Campus was rocked this morning by the sudden announcement that sophomore Philosophy Major Richard "Dick" Kampersutt would not be returning to VCU for his junior year. Kampersutt's request for a release came after a reported difference with the Philosophy Department's new head over whether analysis of Wittgenstein delved into substantive debate or whether it was merely a minor dispute over semantics and blah, blah, blah.
In response, the head of VCU's Philosophy Department, whose name escapes me at the moment, said some things about the need for respect in academic debates and some other stuff. Did you hear that Terry Larrier is transferring? Yeah, super bummed about that, but what can you do?
Anyway, when reached for comment about the, uh, philosophy thing we were talking about, VCU's President Dr. Michael Rao reportedly said: "We have a Philosophy Department?" Which on reflection seems kind of harsh.
Does anyone know where Larrier is transferring, or is this just some kind of exploring his options thing?
Anyway, that philosophy guy is looking for someone to sublet his apartment.
