Re: “Hard Lesson: A UVM Econ Prof Fights to Keep His Job

While I appreciate your opinion, the facts speak for themselves. More than 2500 student evaluations demonstrate that I match or exceed the standards set by Solnick, which contributed to the Faculty Standards Committee unanimous 5.-0 vote to reappoint me. So I am more than a "good man". While you have the right to your opinion, it is just that -- your single, subjective opinion, not hard data (student evaluations) and objective, informed assessment (Faculty Standards Committee). The fact is there are many tenured and thus protected Economics Dept senior members (names withheld here to avoid a lawsuit) that are so bad at teaching they flunk every year the student evaluations by a huge margin. My statistics class you mention, meanwhile, is highly rated by students, and has been taught for 14 consecutive semesters. I can produce the evidence to challenge your sneaky/sly attempt to undermine me.

Re: “VTIFF Turns 30 [SIV418]

Hi Eva,
Thanks. I kinda figured that it was a final cut. I can make a shorter clip from your clip and include a title card with the award and then the announcement. I will credit the footage to Stuck in Vermont. Is that okay? John Summa

Re: “VTIFF Turns 30 [SIV418]

Thanks for the overview. It would have been nice to identify the award and pronounce the film title correctly for The Resurrection of Victor Jara (Ben and Jerry Award for using the lens to shine a light on an important social issue with verve and ingenuity). That ended up on the Stuck in Vermont cutting room floor. By the way, it is Victor Jara (HAra) not JAra. Can you please edit the award title back in? Or do I have to do that?
