To the Faculty: Just Say No Confidence
The faculty will meet two weeks from yesterday, and to a man and women, they should think of shouldering their responsibilities to the College. Little if any good has come from the Hanlon administration; most actions have been lackluster, and there are decisions on the horizon that will be the death of Dartmouth. A motion of no confidence should be presented for the sake of everyone who cares about the school. Let me add my voice to that of The Review’s Jack Mourouzis and the Editors of the D.
First off, Jack’s column entitled A Vote of No Confidence:
And The D in a Friday editorial almost had the courage to say the same thing, Verbum Ultimum: A Vote for the Future:
Will Dartmouth be lost because two faculty members can’t be found to speak truth to an ever-weakening power. All it will take is a professor to put forward a motion and another one to second it. That would be the end of Phil.
Addendum: Of course, the members of the Hanlon administration care little for the thoughts of students, faculty and anyone else who might disagree with them. VP of Advancement Bob Lasher ‘88 has said as much.

We were at San Francisco’s BIX last evening, enjoying prosecco, cheese, and a bit of music. A full year of inhabitation in Northern California has unraveled to me no decent venue for proper lounging, but…

D Afraid of a Little Competish

How Regents Should Reign
As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
