Attention Colleague Larry Shore Who Calls Himself Professor: What’s With Your Latest Lumpen Goombah Kamikaze Email?

Friday, April 22nd, 2016

I think you should check out this link before you kamikaze-eee your next email to me. There is just too much academic debauchery-demonic looniness-depravity in the department for one Colleague to try to coverup. Your herculean efforts, so to speak, will not make the stables look pristine but only serve to attract attention. But you seem comfortable with that.

I saw your recent e-mail.
I thought I could save you some time and hassle. Your notes were wrong,
Tami has nothing to do with the revised radio course.
It is strictly a project between Sissel and Karen.

A Reply to a Reply About the James Aronson Awards for Social Justice Journalism

Friday, April 1st, 2016

I lead with my reply to the reply of  Mr. Buddy Stein, a former D:F/M instructor  about comments I made about the awards on the #D:F/M listserv known as fm-l. We have crossed swords before. As I recall, one swashbuckling involved the word carpetbagger. And another involved his role as member of a grade appeals committee indulged in serious academic hanky-panky regarding the awarding of a passing grade to a student who had failed a class for cheating.

Posted on Hunter-L – Tally Ho: DC 37, PSC Hunter, Academic Bullying

Tuesday, March 29th, 2016

The following was posted on the Hunter College listserv known as Hunter-L, an once thriving general communication apparatus for student, instructors and staff but has fallen on hard times, frequently reading like a tepid supermarket flyer, no less:

Colleagues:

Regarding DC-37 and PSC Hunter, it appears that DC-37@Hunter – DC-37 is the city’s largest public employee union – has been doing a better job helping its members who have been bullied. [Definition of Bullying]

The tally is based on empirical observations and personal experiences.

This is not a rave review of DC-37 on this campus. I don’t know its inner workings as well as I know the inner workings of the PSC Hunter Chapter, which has been compromised for years. That reality about the ethical compromise might not stick in Colleagues’ craws but it sticks in mine, so much so that a while back I was in a back-and-forth with lieutenants of PSC-CUNY President Barbara Bowen.

The rest is in the attachment.

Below is a copy of the emailed I wrote in response to an email I receive from Colleague Tami Gold about the James Aronson Awards for Social Justice Journalism. T-Gold is the self-appointed director of the awards, replacing Erstwhile Colleague Peter Parisi who retired a while back. The Awards Ceremony has been moribund for years. T-Gold believes she can breathe some kind of life into it. She shares her position with an adjunct who asked that I not mention her name in any of Hunter-L postings. And, for now, I’m am following that adjunct’s wishes for now regarding this blog site.
