Former Mexican President Speaks at OU

February 27, 2007


NORMAN, Okla.(AP) Former Mexican President Vicente Fox urges the respect of human and labor rights and says constructing a wall between the two nations is a waste of time and money.

Fox’s comments came today as he addressed an academic convocation at the University of Oklahoma in Norman.

Fox served as Mexico’s president from 2000 to 2006. He touted his country’s economic improvement in recent years, but said much work remains to be done to provide more educational opportunities for its citizens.

He drew loud applause from the mostly students in the audience when he called for a greater United Nations presence in Iraq and urged the United States to exit the country.

O-U President David Boren praised Fox for breaking seven decades of one-party rule in Mexico and for bringing stability to the country’s economy.

Hobson Joins OU Faculty

February 16, 2007

The McCarville Report Online is reporting that former state Senate President Pro Tempore Cal Hobson, 61, will join the staff of the OU College of Continuing Education as director of Adult Executive Training Programs.

OKPNS suggests adding “beverages” after adult in his new title and then he’ll be well worth the $65,000 per year the university is paying him.
