Once upon a time the CEO of the institution at which I worked called his administrative team together and, after chewing on them about a change he wanted, said, "so, has everybody got it, we're going to ... no, wait, this is a democratic country, we're going to vote. Those who want to do it my way, raise your hand and say, 'Aye', those who don't will raise their hand and say, 'I resign'." True story. It taught me the meaning of hubris. Anybody with friends who have worked as CSTCC faculty members will know that Mr. Catanzaro is quite the autocratic leader. Whether his level of hubris approaches that of the CEO above I do not know. CSTCC has flourished under his leadership. The journalist who posted this story reminds me of David vs Goliath. Takes a lot of guts.

David Cook is courageous,smart, gifted and insightful. Chattanooga will be fortunate if he continues honing his craft in this city. This article on "wrongness" is superbly reasoned .. "the work before us is not to make such (unpopular) opinions culturally illegal, but to rather give them the necessary conditions so they ripen and evolve".
