Quote of the Day

"It would be interesting to know how much in political donations to campaigns are being received, and by whom, from those contractors who are receiving these no-bid contracts. It also would be interesting to note how much is being donated to funds such as the Razorback Foundation by these same contractors. It seems as if there is an inexhaustible supply of money to pay off coaches who have fallen from grace. This money must come from somewhere and I would suspect that it may be refundable to the donors in various good-ole-boy ways. This may be an interesting project for one of your competent investigative reporters. The fragrance coming from the University of Arkansas and the state legislators is becoming hard for us ordinary citizens to tolerate."

--Richard H. Eggert, "Follow Trail of Money," Letter to Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
