The point of resigning is that it is something I was thinking of doing anyway. I want to stay in Eugene, OR where moonbats rule instead of living in Tucson, AZ where moonbats are in the minority. So my point is not that you should feel sorry for me but rather you should lay off the stalking like the emails to the head of the psych department at the University of Arizona, the nasty, threatening comments at the various rightwingnut blogs that have jumped on this “story.”
The department head said he would deal with this on Monday. No one has formally accepted my resignation yet. I’ve just submitted it. I understand there are many, many people out there who will want to know how the University of Arizona responds to my offer to give up my temporary gig teaching psychology next year. I will let you all know on Monday or Tuesday.
I’m just asking y’all to leave me alone and go stalk another moonbat.
And this one:
Sheesh – this is really not fun being the lightning rod for unhinged rightwingnuts. But the dust seems to be settling. I just told my parents about what was going on. They read my blog sometimes. My mother told me I was grounded AND I had to wash my mouth out with soap.
And this one:
A guy from Fox News named Richard Carbery emailed and wants to interview me on the phone on Monday. It’s almost as exciting as when I was interviewed by Richard Harris for NPR. I will try to find a copy of that interview and post it.
The dept head at the UA formally accepted my resignation this afternoon.
Rightwing nutcases with nothing better to do on the weekend might want to stop harassing University of Arizona administrators. Just a thought.
Looks like someone at TalkLeft is siding with Mr. Goldstein. But here’s a commenter named bigunit12 who gets it:
On one hand, what she wrote was wrong. But, on the other hand, it was only word. How many dead Iraqi mothers,American and Iraqi fathers, and Iraqi children are conservatives responsible for?
It is unbelievable that a comment saying I would not care if harm came to your child is such a crime to the rightwingnuts when they’ve been happy as clams to send American dupes to murder, maim, rape and torture (yup folks – depriving people of electricity and clean water is a form of torture!) Iraqi children for four years.
I’m not sure there’s room for a pool in our backyard, but I’m consulting with Deb Frisch to find out for sure. Nobody knows more about digging holes than she does.
