Higher Ed is six feet nine inch Edward Appleton, president of Lawt Sidney - an anagram for Walt Disney - University. Among the seven Sidney U. board members are Grumpy Marcus Elay (Yale spelled backwards), Feliz Gonzalez, a crane operator on the San Diego docks, and Doc Rivera, head Veterinarian at the Tijuana Bull Ring. Higher Ed has his hands full dealing with, among other things, Deans such as Dangerous Dan Stonewood who recites Robert Service ballads, like The Shooting of Dan McGrew, in his head during faculty meetings. But besides all the satirical zaniness, the novel Higher Ed offers thoughts on some serious issues facing modern society, including, extramarital affairs, scientific fraud, and bioethical questions relating to abortion, euthanasia, and aging.
