Dr. John Kelly, FAU's New President, Should Understand How Things Went So Wrong Last Year

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. It's a cliché and a truism -- one FAU's new president, Dr. John Kelly, should heed.

The horrors FAU birthed in 2013 -- the GEO Group stadium naming rights deal and the "Step on Jesus" kerfuffle, primarily -- were the school's own doing. The publicly funded institution has never offered a full public accounting of its missteps, and there is no sign a full internal review has been done. Now that the school's search for a new president is over, both are in order.
