Gee Apologizes For Polish Comment
Ohio State University President Gordon Gee has apologized to a Polish-American group that criticized him for comparing the problem of coordinating the school’s many divisions to the Polish army.

The group had issued a statement yesterday calling Gee’s comment slanderous and a slur against a military that the group said has fought valiantly and effectively with the U.S. in Iraq and Afghanistan.
