I can't imagine that any Baylor University president has started his tenure with as much of a spotlight on him as the newly appointed Kenneth Starr.
If I remember correctly, the most news coverage former president John M. Lilley received in the beginning was from the Waco Tribune-Herald, The Dallas Morning News and possibly the Houston Chronicle. But with Starr, the new president is featured in the likes of The Huffington Post and The Washington Post.
It will be interesting to watch how this decision shapes Baylor's future. Will Starr continue the course or make the university more of a target with certain media? Only time will tell.
In the meantime, a new book called The Death of American Virtue: Clinton vs. Starr is recalling what thrust the new Baylor president into the national spotlight.
