Some of you know that last year I was working on a plan for reorganising the college. Friday the board decided to what extent the college should be reorganised. They threw out everything we suggested and went in the opposite direction, except for one little bit where we had said that this was one possible way of organising things (hiring instead of electing deans).
I foresee years of saying "this was exactly what we wanted to avoid".
Or, if I am not Cassandra, perhaps I am Dr. Kathryn Railly.
