Pilarz Leaving: Update
Indeed, we got a rather nasty note in our mailbox at the Political Science Department today accusing us of being “naïve” for writing that we like what we have seen from Pilarz. It then gave a long list of supposed derelictions on Pilarz’ part.
We aren’t going to post about anything we can’t properly source.
And indeed, there are conspiracy theories about who, in the Marquette community, might have a grudge against Pilarz that would lead them to spread nasty rumors.
If anybody actually has any solidly sourced information about any derelictions on Pilarz’ part that might have led to his dismissal, we would like to know about it. Until then, we aren’t too receptive to “reading between the lines” of statements from Pilzar and the Trustees. That can be less a sound interpretation of a text than a reaction to a Rorschach test.
