Just a reminder that these are real quotes from the real Brian Buhr.
Department Of: Fuck, marry, kill: Norm from the Barn, the bull at Shooters, the Robert E. Lee statue?

DO: Which member of the Board of Trustees do you make your enemy?
BB: Oh my gosh. I hope he reads this actually. There’s this man named Jeff Ubben. [redacted] oh I probably shouldn’t be saying this. Hmm. [redacted]
DO: You already started the story.
BB: [redacted] mm, mmm definitely probably shouldn’t be saying this. [redacted]
BB: So Jeff Ubben. One time I talked to him about free speech and hate speech. And he was pushing me on like what would work and why conversations won’t work. And I tried to explain why conversations wouldn’t work and it’s like you can’t just talk to someone in a room and all of sudden be, “oh we solved hate speech (claps hands).” So I was just saying conversations don’t work. And he was just really pushing me there and really rubbed me the wrong way.
