Robert May, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and Linguistics at the University of California at Davis, writes:
I think there is an interesting contrast between the University of Virginia situation and that of Linda Katehi, chancellor here at UC Davis. We now know from the Reynoso report (discussed here) of Katehi's complicity in the violent act against the innocent students, and her mendacity about her role in the pepper spraying incident; for this she does deserve to be, and ought to be, fired from her position. Yet nary a word to this effect has been heard from the UC Board of Regents nor the President of UC. The campus Academic Senate did finally censure Katehi, but stopped short of calling for her to be fired, which had been recommended by the Senate's committee that had looked into the incident. As we head off this week to our summer vacations, it is apparently business as usual in the Chancellor's office.
Now if she had been involved in pepper-spraying on-line students, that would have been different!
