Any funding or free rent for University of Wisconsin Press should be at the top of the list for budget cuts. The same logic should also apply to many other university presses throughout the country that publish obscure books that few want to read at taxpayer expense. Are these publishing operations a priority, especially with the advent of electronic books. The world is changing. In academia the phrase is "publish or perish." Time for taxpayers to pick one.
