In the interests of not spending the entire evening getting myself needlessly worked up I'm just going to give you the tl;dr version of why, and hopefully that'll be enough in the way of venting. (I tried to discuss them with my doctor on Monday, but she wasn't having it.)
So here it is.
The people who set up La Trobe, fifty years ago, not to mention the people who brought it to life with their youth and energy,
unlike the arseholes who are running it now.
THEY TOOK LA TROBE SERIOUSLY
That's all. Thanks for listening.
