@chirdia it was basically a thanks to nicole for posting this and some rambling about my research interests
hahaha i deleted my comment ON ACCIDENT ugh
@Ed@twitter there are multiple gyms already, i suppose a yoga center wouldn't be so outrageous although it sounds kind of like a dumb idea
@crickethill let's all go see magic mike together
@Carrie Ann no thank YOU! after I wrote that I was thinking "why did you write that nobody cares." but you care!
really, i saw a lot of facebook posts from my former students/interns and even other grad students that were all about supporting sullivan. it just bothers me because it wasn't really about her, but rather about the University (and then the University as a representative of higher education in the US today). reinstating sullivan is not and should not be the end of this story.
@nbt the bankers were actually alums, not even on the Board of Visitors. so gross.
ALSO I WANT TO SAY SOMETHING IMPORTANT! in that during this mess, a lot of people seemed to get confused protesting and trying to undo a very dark, sinister, and foreboding action with some kind of undying love for the president...which honestly she wasn't around long enough for people to get all "we heart sullivan!!" all of a sudden. the faculty were integral to getting the ouster overturned, and i never failed to notice in their communications with us (grad students) that the focus was never on how much we wanted sullivan in particular in power, but rather how we could not let corporate interests and back-alley dealings inform the running of our Public Educational Institution. not that we have anything against sullivan... it's just been bugging me how the cause needs a face when it's about the principles and ethics.
@chirdia @foureyedgirl but who they would be in star wars i cannot help you with.
@foureyedgirl there was a sacrificial dark side guy, a member of the Board of Visitors who resigned after the mess started. he probably wasn't really on the dark side in the first place since he likely was not aware of what was going on, but you must be on the dark side to be appointed to the BOV in the first place, so there.
there was ANOTHER sacrifice i just remembered! the chair of the business school also stepped down. he actually blew the whole thing up further by absent-mindedly reply-alling an email that contained info showing the Board was lying and it leaked to the press.
