Council Refuses to Give Balancing Information

Simon Bronner
Harrisburg, PA

Dec 8, 2013 — Earlier I wrote that I made a request to the Council to provide information that balances the Council's claims for boycott. That request was refused by ASA President Curtis Marez with the statement that members know how to get that information if they want it. We note the way the deck has been stacked, however, and misstatements by the Council are not allowed to be challenged. So this is more reason to get ASA members to vote not to endorse or abstain whether against the boycott or the kind of biased leadership that is being exhibited. David Bernstein has also blogged with a caustic piece on the "lunacy" of the boycott: see http://www.mindingthecampus.com/originals/2013/12/a_watered-down_boycott_resolut.html.
