You got hate mail for heading a search committee? Seriously? Without getting into the specifics of what was said in the hate mail, what was the theme of it? What the hell could people possibly be upset about?

Work well done Ari, you certainly have my support in the current climate of the educational attack.

If you feel comfortable shooting me a PM, I'd love to hear more. On the one hand, I don't know any effective senior administrators who don't have at least a few detractors. On the other hand, local knowledge is very useful, and I'd love to know more about the man.

I wish Gary May all the best. I think he'll be good for UCD. Thanks for your work on the selection committee, Ari!
