Jesus must be coming soon.
The Daily Press announced today that Charles A. Taylor is "retiring" from TNCC. Read the story at: http://www.dailypress.com/news/dp-local_tncctaylor_0613jun13,0,1220017.story
I guess "retiring" means that he gets benefits that he wouldn't get if he "resigned" (or if he was "fired" which is what the faculty did to him last year).
The Daily Press article reminds readers that Taylor was working on a "special project" for the VCCS. Now isn't that just "special." Has anybody seen the finished product? Or did Virginia taxpayers drop two hundred grand to prevent Taylor from suing the state alleging racial discrimination? Well, it was money well spent since it got him out the door.
He had/has friends in high places so you can bet that most of us don't know half of the "dirt" that must have prompted the chancellor to give him a "sabbatical."
Let's hope that if he tries to get another job colleges will use due diligence better than TNCC and VCCS did.
Taylor already had a rap sheet when he was hired at TNCC. Too bad thems what hired him aren't paying a price too.
