From the time capsule – 1980 – Cantankerous, stubborn, harsh, tyrannical, dictatorial, bitter, and humorless. Those are some of the nicer descriptions people had for John Robert Silber – a Texan who earned a PhD in philosophy from Yale University and then returned to Texas in the 1950s to serve as a professor and later the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Texas during the late 1960s. In 1971, Silber moved on to Massachusetts to become the 7th and longest serving President of Boston University.
Professed liberals, students and even members of the BU faculty despised him. They repeatedly tried to oust him and they presumed, because of his Texas upbringing, he was a bigot and a right-wing conservative. He took great offense at such assumptions because he spent most of his life in academia championing liberal Democratic causes. In 1990, he won the Democratic nomination in the race for Governor of Massachusetts. A race he lost in a close election to Republican William Weld.
By the time Silber died in 2012, he had been President Emeritus at BU for nearly a decade. Prior to his Emeritus status, Silber had been President then Chancellor of Boston University for a combined span of more than 30 years. He was unequivocally the “Big Man on Campus.” Or, less flatteringly, “The Bad Man on Campus,” as he was portrayed in a “60 Minutes” profile by correspondent Mike Wallace on the CBS television network in January 1980. A few weeks after that “60 Minutes” report aired, 19-year-old sophomore Boston University broadcast journalism major Marcus Jones sat down with Dr. Silber in his office to conduct a wide-ranging, unrestricted interview, which included such topics as racism, affirmative action, hiring practices, tuition increases, dissident faculty members, disrespectful students, ghetto slang, Martin Luther King, Jr., and the definition of what it means to be a true liberal thinker.
The interview, which was recorded on a consumer-grade cassette tape recorder, has been enhanced with still images from the period for the sake of this video presentation. Segments of the interview were first used in reports Jones prepared for WILD-AM during the month of February 1980. The complete interview, which runs just shy of 50 minutes, has never been heard in its entirety until now.

In a Q&A video, Suzy says that she is the manager for Game Grumps.
Suzy is often around the office while the Grumps are recording. On her Tumblr, Suzy has stated that she has woken up to Jons screaming while he and Arin were recording many times. She appeared very briefly in Arins Gotta Poo, alongside Barry and Mimi, when Jon starts recording a video and walks out of the Grump Room. She makes her first vocal appearance in Pay Your Workers, after Arin tries to call Barry into the room, and she can be heard saying "Hes pooping." Suzy makes her first appearance as a player in the Mario Party 4 Steam Rolled series, playing alongside Arin, Barry and Ross. She has now become a recurring player on the Steam Rolled episodes, replacing Danny.
Arin has suggested several times that she would play The Lion King on Game Grumps while he and Jon commentate. On February 14th, 2014 she appeared alongside
Arin on two Valentine-themed episodes on Game Grumps, called Date Grumps. One of these was The Lion King, and the other was Super Paaauzzle Fighter II Turbo. On instagram Game Grumps posted a photo of Suzy with a text explaining that Suzy is working on a new fan showcase show on the Game Grumps channel. The name and format of the upcoming series is still unknown, but it is speculated that the show will be Suzy announcing and discussing new fan material, like fanart, Game Grumps animated and remixes, making the Game Grumps fan content more known. On June 25th, 2014 a new intro debuted on Steam Train with the first episode of Kings Quest VI on the shows one year anniversary. All the five grumps were featured in the intro which suggested that Suzy (along with Barry) will be featured in the series outside of Steam Rolled as well. This was confirmed by Ross on reddit, and Barry made his first offical appearance in Cliffhorse. Suzy made her official appearance two days later on Mount Your Friends.
Suzy and Barry have a series called Table Flip. The series involves them and certain guests playing various tabletop games, such as board games, card games, dice games, miniature wargames, tile-based games and other games that are normally played on a table or other flat surface. This is different from Game Grumps, Steam Train, and Grumpcade as they play video games.
