Brown University President Ruth Simmons took a 10 percent cut in her annual compensation this past year, The Brown Daily Herald reported on Tuesday. This was the third year that Simmons requested and was given a deduction in her annual salary. She will receive about $536,000 for the year, according to The Herald. University chancellor Thomas Tisch said that Simmons' decision to reduce her salary was a reaction to the institution's increasing revenue gap, adding that other administrators have followed her example, according to The Herald.

Joseph Asch '79 doesn't have the greatest reputation around these parts, as far as I can tell. The profile on him in The Dartmouth ("College critic makes voice heard," Sept. 24) was factually correct, but gave enough quotes to his opponents and was written in such a way as to convey a generally negative impression of him. Additionally, many students simply view him as "the crazy old guy." To some extent, this makes sense. How often are the words of an alumnus found in the pages of this publication? Plus, Asch often presents his case in an impassioned way that students may find unique.
