Quotes

"Last November, there were tons of misinformation being put out by its critics and nobody really understood it or knew how it was going to affect them" Beshear said Tuesday. Now, he says most Kentuckians are realizing it doesn't affect them, and the remaining 20 percent "like what they're getting."
"We make sure that they understand how to be responsible and professional in the handling of these types of stories, and so the publications that we put out were recognized. This was recognized... that my students don't just write fluff pieces, so to speak" she says
"...to use the knowledge they gain and the skills they gain to make a better world for others. And I quote Nelson Mandela, 'It's not enough to cast off your chains. One must respect and advance the freedom of others,' and there's a lot of freedom to be advanced in your country, in mine, all over the world" he said
"Sodexo, Aramark, and Compass... all have demonstrated that they cut health benefits for workers and just treat workers rather poorly. We think it's a bad decision for a pubic university, the land-grant university in Kentucky, to make" says UK senior Ben Norton
