More of the same???

So loyal readers, the regime continues in its feeble attempts to silence your humble narrator and colleagues. I am truly humbled that our attempts at shining the light on administrative misdeeds has driven a university with continuously declining enrollment to pay a law firm to infringe on our First Amendment rights. (See this Chicago Tribune article) I am sure that you, loyal readers, won't stand for this blatant attempt at censorship, especially when administrative misconduct is at the center of this controversy. I am sure you remember falsified employment applications and the inaction taken by this administration. I am sure that you recall the failed attempts at censorship in the computer usage policy and the communications policy. This administration just doesn't get it. The misdeeds you engage in will be brought into the light of day. And since no affirmative defense has ever been offered, I can only conclude what appears on this blog is true. The sycophantic responses by anonymous readers, usually few and far between, never offer any argument in defense of the abysmal performance of this administration. Those comments always seem to degenerate into ad hominem attacks on the authors and no discussion of the substance of the post.
Be assured loyal readers that all of the contributors to our fair blog will agree as to which tack we will take in the request presented by the university's newest legal representatives.
Stay tuned.
