I am grateful for Professor Prescott’s res­ponse to my review. He clearly cares about “Canadian academics” and the “national academy” as much as I do.

However, Prescott and I do not have to agree about how that caring should express itself, nor about the likelihood of CAUT’s reputation being “destroy(ed)” by the uncensored publication of the opinions of one person. Moreover, I think most of my “barbs” could be readily supported from, for example, the past history and current situation of the scholar whose photo graces the front page of the March Bulletin, Dr. Nancy Olivieri.
