(September 18, 2006) Does the “B” Stand for Boondoggle? More Shenanigans in Doty’s Bureau of Business and
Economic Research "It’s no secret in the CoB that the Bureau of Business and Economic Research is an empty shell.
There is no staff, there is no activity, there is no ongoing research program, and there is no Gunther, at least not
much of the time. Why is that? Our investigators believe they have found one source of the inactivity of the BBER.
That source is located near the sunny shores of Pensacola Beach. That source is the University of West Florida. …
Based on what we’ve uncovered to date, the CoB’s Bureau of Business and Economic Research appears to be the
greatest invention since the Internet,at least for Harold and Susan Doty (it’s a free-and-clear-from USM income
stream) and William Gunther (it’s a 1-course teaching load reduction without extra work). ..." For more information,

salary and fringe benefits at $144,000+)
(September 12, 2006) The Case of the Stifled Server "On September 8, 2006, the CoB email server breathed its last
breath…or did it? The CoB was, once upon a time, one of the first colleges at USM to have its own mail server to
enable email as a standard form of communication. Faculty and administrators were willing to route resources to
make sure that reliable email was available, as it was in the world outside USM. Former college tech officer Kevin
Sellers maintained that original server as it limped along in its old age, and, when it finally died, Harold Doty
proudly proclaimed that there would be not one but two new servers - a main server and a backup server. This was
approximately 2004. Now, two years later, the CoB's new tandem email server system is kaput...".
(September 18, 2006)The CoB Beauty Parlor Coming Soon "A new set of fees could soon be added to student
accounts in the College of Business, and they're sure to be controversial. The CoB, which already tacks $19 per
semester onto each student's bill to cover the cost of the Wall Street Journal Academic Partnership Program, is
currently looking to continue its trend of unabashed totalitarianism by creating a new system of requisite expenses
for seniors in the CoB...".
(September 18, 2006) Doty's Shameful Treatment of Dr. Lo "Assertions made at USMpride.com indicate that Doty
and his team of administrators merely neglected to properly reward one of the CoB's most productive junior faculty
members, former Assistant Professor of Economics Melody Lo. Lo departed USM in May for a similar position at
the University of Texas-San Antonio and a rumored 40% pay hike."
