Old Main Give's Itself an A

In March, the Washington Post and Politico each had a story about an emerging lobbying scandal surrounding the Penn State Electro-Optic Center.  Old Main hasn't had anything to say about the scandal, but today it mounts an indirect defense of the Center in a long laudatory piece published by the Penn State Propaganda Portal (PSPP).
When Penn State opened the Electro-Optics Center (EOC) in 1999, the University's vision was to create an entity that would foster economic development in the state and to provide research and development in areas critical to the nation's defense.
Well, how's it done in achieving those goals? It should surprise no one that Old Main has declared the Center a  success.
Ten years later, the center has proven to be successful in meeting both of those goals and has helped in the development of some of the most sophisticated technology in use today.
It's easy to get A's when you get to grade yourself.
