UM President Donna Shalala Scores a Touchdown

It's fun having a University President who does good stuff:

Men-only Policy Brings Scrutiny to Booster Club—When Natalie Lemos applied for membership to the Miami Touchdown Club, a bastion of football worship, the mother of four, family lawyer and Hurricanes football fan was told no.

You're a woman, the club said. No women allowed.

Lemos fired off a furious letter to University of Miami President Donna Shalala, noting that the club sponsors UM's annual awards banquet.

Shalala's response? The former Clinton Cabinet member said she, too, would apply to join the club.

Turns out the Touchdown Club may be changing its game plan.

She scores!
