what's Bob Jones going to be doing now?

Bob Jones U. President to Retire

Bob Jones III said Thursday he will retire as president of the Christian university that bears his name, ending a 34-year reign during which the school grabbed headlines because of its racial policies and fundamentalist views.

-snip-

"I've seen too many institutions - churches, Christian ministries - suffer when somebody stays too long," he said. "And I've never wanted that to happen here."

Jones said he will spend more time traveling and preaching but will remain a visible part of the campus, as chairman of the board of trustees and perhaps as "grandpa" to 5,000 students who attend college at the campus in Greenville, about 100 miles northwest of Columbia.

that's the same as saying 'I'm going to spend more time with my family.'

guess next he will turn up in the White House

2. I rate Jack Ruby above Bob Jones III, any day of the week.
Zealot, Demagogue, Puke-Head.
