Biddy Martin leaves UW "with great sadness."

She sounded very sad . The signals she sent say that she was forced to leave Wisconsin.

I repent of all I said about Biddy.

But, she's walking into a snake pit at Amherst. Out of the frying pan and into the fire.

I know the TA union here at Madison became anti-Biddy when she went on board with new Badger partnership, in effect making UW a separate entity from the other Wisconsin universities.

The TAs, which I am (albeit not in favor of the unions and the protests), were saying that the new idea would effect our students in a negative manner. As with the lower level teachers, it boils more down to the pay and benefits for the teachers.

Just another ploy to use students as leverage.

Amherst, talk about a leftist boot camp, along with Smith,Wellesly, and so many others.

Magna cum dolore doesn't reach nearly to summa cum dolore.

It sounds to me like she's making a quick exit.

tradguy, the story in this morning's MJS, stated that Amherst approached her...no doubt sensing an opening, on her part.

So does this mean that we should expect the next UW Chancellor to be outspokenly anti-Walker? Or just a little more standoffish? Ward Churchill isn't doing anything right now, just sayin'.

FWIW, couldn't get the vid to run in Google Chrome.

In any case, it sounds as if she's been a good friend to you. Sorry for that.

"FWIW, couldn't get the vid to run in Google Chrome."

Or Firefox.

Sheesh, for a bunch of college edumacated fancy-pancy schmucks, you'd think they'd have fucking heard of YouTube.

Can't stop the message? Yes, yes you can.
