Many people may wonder why I am taking a course of action which seems so counterproductive to me personally, after keeping a relatively low profile in Spring 2006, when I heard abour the termination of my Lecturer's contract. Put simply, it is entirely a point of honor, loyalty to students, and solidarity with other teaching faculty. "He may be doing somebody else a favor, but he is not helping himself" (a remark overheard in Kayak's Coffee Shop in early Autumn 2006). I am sure this is true.

I was prepared to take my hat in my hand and move to another local University, with two good recommendations guaranteed, when I thought the the process was, if not fair, at least reasonable, perhaps a budgetary matter. I no longer believe this.

You may wonder why I want my job back, under the circumstances. Once again, it is a point of honor, and loyalty to my students.
