|Like this but with blue stone inlay|
|No there there|
All was well. Then, upon everyone’s return from the break, denizens of the PAC zone were horrified to find that the table had disappeared. Had it been stolen?
Nope. Evidently, IVC’s Director of Facilities decided that he did not like the table there, and so, with evident and blatant unilateralism, he moved the darned thing to the crossing of that tree-lined pedestrian boulevard out beyond the PE complex. It’s near the soccer field. Way out there, a road to nowhere.
I went to that location today and, sure enough, I found a handsome concrete table with three ornate concrete bench/chairs. The table and chairs are embellished with inlaid stones. Blue. Nice.
|Rice, Ripston, Sobel|
There’s a handful of such people on campus. Roquemore let’s ‘em do like that. He either doesn’t care or he’s too dumb to notice. After ten years, does it even matter?
IVC is a peculiar place. By and large, teaching is excellent and much of the remaining staff is excellent.
But IVC’s top echelon, save our bumbling president, comprises mostly bullies. Bullies seem to thrive at IVC. You know who I mean.
Or don’t you?
Even some faculty have exploited Roquemore's bully tolerance policy. One sees them treating perceived underlings—classified employees, junior faculty, adjuncts—badly, amassing power or influence, feathering their nest, blackballing those who don’t fit into their relentless, self-aggrandizing machinations.
It sure is a shame.
