About tenure review 

I usually agree with Anne Neal, but I will remind her on tenure review: When I agreed to the salary structure of SCSU, I traded off the ability to get market wages, rewards and bonuses and all kinds of remuneration in return for the guarantee of a lifetime of student papers to grade, committees to fall asleep in, etc. If you'd like to change the terms of employment and take away something I bargained for, I will require compensation. And I'm quite willing to make that bargain, though I suspect the union that protects the driftwood will object. Good luck.
