Left by “Squared” in the comment section of the Village Voice article about the NYU vote of no confidence:
That’s from a recent Village Voice piece critical of NYU and John Sexton: http://www.villagevoice.com/2013-02-20/news/nyu-expansion/
The piece refers to Karl’s assertion as the simple “reason for widespread hostility to Sexton.”
So why have the organizers of the Faculty of Arts and Science limited the voting to tenured and tenure-track faculty?
The piece describes FAS as a “a faculty that numbers roughly 2,600.”
So why, according to the voting website that I used earlier tonight, are there only 682 eligible voters?
The limitation on voting suggests that the organizers don’t think the other 1,900 rate. One of the organizers should ask the Voice to correct its figure, lowering the “2,600” to “700.”

Woke up at 3:00 a.m. GST to watch the stream at 3:00 a.m. on nhl.com — and was rewarded with a dominant performance by the Rangers over Ottawa to start up the Stanley Cup playoff run. Captain Ryan Callahan scored the first goal — and I thought to myself, “He’s another Mark Messier.” And that, my friends, bodes very well indeed.
And here’s where I am, seen from space. You can make out “HAMAD” just above the “Is” in “Futaisi Island.” This photo was taken by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency via satellite on 28 November 2007. Click on the photo to see more pictures, including a closer view of the city. Saadiyat Island is the future home of NYU Abu Dhabi.
Now THAT is one incredible photo!
New York City, City of Lights (via Pat Kiernan): “Check out this crazy, and very cool photo taken from the International Space Station. I think it kind of looks like a string of volcanoes erupting but it’s actually the Eastern seaboard at night. That big mess of nights on the right side of the frame? That’s New York City and Long Island.”
Indiana Jones on Blu-ray this fall! Can’t wait (having owned bootleg DVDs, the first DVD trilogy release, and even the second DVD release in the slim cases with some alternative bonus material). And, yes, the Blu-ray of the Crystal Skull (I’d rather watch second-tier Indy than 99% of the other films in its genre).
