Video report from UH-Downtown renaming meeting

Con Frijoles has a video clip of his testimony last Friday before the UH-Downtown Board of Regents concerning the name change saga. I just want to add that while I think Houston Metropolitan University is a perfectly decent name despite the understandable concerns some folks have, I also think there's nothing wrong with "UH-Downtown". Given all the pushback the Board has gotten, it seems to me the best option at this point is to regroup, get consensus and buy-in from the community, and try again (if necessary) in 2011. I think the odds of a successful outcome for this session are rapidly dwindling.
