I also wish to express my support for John Unsworth whose wisdom and
moral authority is probably unsurpassed in academia at large, but
certainly in the DH suburbs. I have the utmost respect for him
personally, and great confidence in his ability to take the reigns of
leadership at this time.
I mean that period on the end of that sentence to read as a full stop.
Ok, now, another thing:
I suspect that I am not alone in feeling somewhat conflicted because I
also deeply respect Martin and very much agreed with the vision for
the future laid out in his letter. I wish I could understand what
caused 3 of my colleagues to take such an action against him.
Perhaps, as John suggests, it really is best to look to #teifuture now
as I admit I cannot really think of anything to be gained as an
organization by dwelling on the cause of his removal, but I hope
Martin's letter will remain central to the plans for the future.
I believe I am now disenfranchised, not being employed by a member
organization (right?), but nonetheless I offer a hearty (if ultimately
futile) vote of confidence for that vision
