Was MSU President John Engler a bully when he was in the Michigan Legislature and when he was governor?
At the MSU School of Journalism, they called it a string book. It held clippings of what you had published in a newspaper and it was usually bound together strings in two or three places on the margin. Over the years, my string book morphed into a several and then into a collection of good sized boxes. It survived several moves and a couple of marriages.
I've been paring down my collection of columns and stories I wrote. I found this one written when former Gov. Engler was a member of the Michigan House of Representatives while he was in his late twenties. He's now the acting president of MSU.
His leadership style morphed into what many have described as skillful bullying. Was it intimidation or just being an effective leader?
Was Engler a role model for Trump or vice versa? The stories are legend.
