Journal steps up, demands Independent Answer to questions about the handling of the Locksley affair.

In the Journal this morning, link, Rick Wright reamed me for being bellicose and guilty of delivering a 45 second soapbox diatribe before getting around to asking a "valid and pertinent" question;

Will there be an independent investigation of
the handling of the Locksley affair?
Wright agrees with the need for an outside investigation.

UNM's image is in the toilet. Many people really believe
that there is something being covered up.

KRQE's Jessica Garate, after stating that they had lied
to the local press, asked straight out if there were going to be
any consequences for the botched investigation.
Their response to her question meant, no. Everyone involved
will get a "second chance".

If Schmidly, Krebs, and Gonzales are telling the truth
about a cover up, an independent investigation will exonerate
them. They should be demanding an independent corroboration.

UNM President David Schmidly, Athletic Director Paul Krebs, and HR VP Helen Gonzales freely admit to a myriad of mistakes. Yet they insist that it is up to them to decide which mistakes will be admitted and whether anything will be done about them.

That Schmidly still "has not made a decision" is a pretty good indication that he has.

When the question is;
do you intend to tell the truth,
any answer except yes, means no.

Hesitation, usually means no.

None of them has any intention of allowing any impartial, independent investigation of their handling of the situation.

UNM has nothing to fear, except the truth.

bellicose; inclined or eager to fight.
diatribe; sharply abusive denunciation, attack, or criticism.
Yeah, I can roll with that.

Wright would rather I be ashamed or embarrassed I guess.

Perhaps he feels personally wounded by my ongoing insistence
that the Journal itself, is part of a cover up.

A cover up of the ongoing refusal by the leadership of the APS
to commence an "outside investigation"; an independent
investigation of the ethics and accountability scandal
in the leadership of the APS.

I will assuage the damage to my ego by reflecting on the number of people who came up to me immediately afterward and expressed their appreciation for what I had done. I was asked to speak on radio afterward. The host told his listeners there was nearly a standing ovation.

Often, though not often enough, people do come up to me and
express their appreciation for my effort. It sustains me when
I have to put up with those who would rather attack me than
tell the truth about whatever it is that I am pointing to.

During the conversation on the radio, the discussion came around to the need for torches and pitchforks. He asked if I was willing to cause a demonstration.

Well, yeah.

But somebody else has to show up or, I just look stupid.

Bellicose? I think Rick is giving you way to much credit. I would say you are nothing more than a vulture trying to pick away at the bones...

Check the clock sir your 15 minutes is up

Clever closer, but your reference to picking away at the bones makes no sense to me, so I cannot respond to it.

Amen brother Lee Roy. You summed up MacQuiqq in just a few sentences.

Dear Ched,
At least you have "15 minutes".
Who the heck is this unknown drone? (keeping in theme with the palindromes)
Lee Roy, (by the way, why did your mom break your name in 2? She knew you'd have trouble with 1 "normal" name?) you make no sense. It's obvious you want attention, but we can't all be your therapist!

This from a guy who went looking for a purpose in life, and stopped looking when he got to internet troll; an anonymous one at that.

Thank you for your ad hominem attack, and the vindication it provides.
