Age vs. Competence
I seldom touch on UGA issues but this piece
on the Adams vs. Dooley saga is a good read and expands on age discrimination issues, as the issue here is between an aging but proven atheletic director who wants to keep doing what he does for a few more years and a (slightly) younger but much less competent university president who wants to bring in another one of his no-name buddies from a previous gig. Even if you find fault in Dooley, you need only remember the fiasco with basketball coach Jim Harrick and his son for an example of who Adams might bring in as a replacement.
Some jobs shouldn't be age-limited and some people don't have enough else besides age going for them. This sort of reminds me of the millions of Americans in the 1990's who said they'd rather have an Alzheimer's-afflicted Ronald Reagan than a fully-functional Bill Clinton at the helm.
