    Unquestionably, Steve, you were correct all along. Rest assured, this will never be forgotten, as I believe your exploits were immortalized in song… ;

    The Ballad of MIGS
    (sung to the tune of The Ballad of Jed Clampett – the theme song from The Beverly Hillbillies)

    Come 'n listen to my story 'bout a school named MIGS
    Run by a bunch of fat, slimy, greedy pigs
    An' then one day, they decided to file suit
    Expectin’ t’ make a whole lot of loot
    Dough, that is! Big bucks! Mucho dinero!

    Well, the first thing ya know, it’s all out on the ‘net
    Kin-folk said, "That’s a mill, you kin bet!"
    The state of Florida said “Not here, no way!”
    So they loaded up the url and moved to Monterrey.
    Mexico that is! No oversight, do as we please!

    Now they didn’ really move; they’re still in Lauderdale.
    ’Though lotsa folk think, that they belong in jail.
    Lotsa folks objected, but the CEU found no fault,
    'Cause ol' MIGS’s money would be comin’ to their vault
    Cash, that is! Los dolares, American money!

    Well now it's time to say goodbye to MIGS and all their ilk
    An' they would like to thank you folks fer all that they could bilk.
    You're all invited back again to get yer degree,
    T'have a heapin' helpin' of their hypocrisy.
    Moneygrubbin’, that is! Set a spell, Give us yer wallet!

    Y'all come back, hear!

    Excellent! I hope you e-mailed this to Steve since he doesn't check in as often as he used to. Maybe you should e-mail it to Sheila et al as well.

    Best line: "So they loaded up the URL and moved to Monterrey." [​IMG]

    Steve is probably busy getting sued by Mercer University for his comments regarding the Mercer educator with a doctorate from St. George University International.

    Nice thought, Cox, but afraid you're wrong. I had a delightful conversation with one of Mercer's attorneys several months back, but never heard from her again.

    As for lawsuits in general, I think we have all seen the last of them for a while. Certainly, Chip's and Gus' comments on MIGS (not to mention Rich's comments, since his conversion-of-sorts) are far more direct, damaging, and flippant than any of the comments I made, yet Enrique has not filed suit against them. Perhaps MIGS knows that the wittnesses against them would faaaaaar outnumber their fans.

    Meanwhile, except for an occasional check-in here, the lake is lovely this time of year and I actually am getting a tan. Far more fun than being preoccupied with the idiocy of cyberspace.

    By the way, great song, Gus.
