It's getting to be that inglorious time of the year when tenure decisions are being announced. This is what separates the mediocre from the excellent, or so adminiflakes would have us believe.
It seems in my observations over the years that this form of academic hazing is capricious at best and the manifestation of evil at worst.
If you, dear reader, have words of encouragement for your brethren during this time of shock, horror, and grieving, now is the time to share it. If you have a horror story, I would hope this is a place to share, rage, and be supported.
