|If you haven't already done so, see Ed's blog for a good discussion of this, with some very apropos remarks about just how arbitrary the awarding or not rewarding of tenure often/usually is.|
What could Brayton ever know about tenure? He is not eligable, never considered, and never will be.
Gack gack ptuie. Heddle did have a sensible comment. I was rejected for tenure at one college the same year I cleared the same amount of grant $$ as my salary, received the board of trustee's "Commendation for Excellence" and was named "Teacher of the Year." I was told that a single tenured faculty member stopped the application by claiming I "was not very collegal." Translated that means I objected to his habit of giving good grades for blow-jobs.
Sure there is a personality aspect. Anybody here work in any large companies?
I'd trade grades for blow jobs. Maybe that's part of the reason I was never tenured.
Hmmm. There may be more to it though.

Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it
Look what it's done so far
