It's a mans world girls! The Republican/Muslim Party would like to veil our women and enslave them which is evident with recent actions taken against women. I plan on adding to that legacy if elected! Woman...bring me my Swiss Check Book NOW!

After reading this article,I can not help but compare it to the Board of Supervisors in FLuvanna County who did what they wanted to do to try and stop the opening of the New High School,,,it is going to open,but they the (BOS)made sure it was not with the amount of money needed to run it properly

Good Luch to Ms. Sullivan where ever she goes,

When you are "not one of us" (A UVA Graduate). And you are a female, the national politics prevail all across the Country. Gov Bobbie has proved that he can bring those same politics into our community. I'm sure we will find out what else he had against her. But Bobbie's smallness shines again.

Good luck and God speed Ms Sullivan.

STOP THE WAR ON WOMEN!

You are an uninformed or, more probably a liar, when it comes to your posts. This issue with the removal of Ms. Sullivan is (most likely) tied to her involvement in a false publication which may be sought out for YOUR understanding. There are charges of "Scientific Misconduct" involved. And as for your charges of "Mitt's/ Republicans" war on women, you and Central Va. jarhead (and if your really were a Marine, I hope you were discharged dishonorably as you seem to have none) are flat out liars AND fools. It is and continues to be a "progressive's war on women through Planned Parenthood, Gendercide- to abort unwanted female babies, to lewd, foul speech about women and the unwillingness to fight against that Muslim "thing" you charge Republicans with; ie: stonings, "honor" killings, veils and driving restrictions, acid burnings and poisonings of girls/ young women who are trying to get schooling and the list goes on. In Europe, the reports of sex slave trade involving young (underage) girls by "Asians"- read Muslims from Pakistan, Afghanistan, Somalia and other Islamic nations is [finally] putting a strain on western patience. The same in Australia, as the world news outlets will attest. But you make your wise comments based on no truth and expose yourself as a dope with no understanding of what is real. But you should rename yourself Nitt Numbny just to reflect your true quality...

I don't care what the news stories say. Nobody at that level gets canned "suddenly." Somebody--either the BOV or Sullivan--said, "This is what I want you to do," and the other party said, "No." However, the ripples from that exchange takes *weeks* to play out. This was not sudden.

In terms of future direction, watch Simon and Strine. If they get more responsibility out of this, that's a good thing. Those two have their heads on straight. If they are not given more responsibility, watch out; it's going to be a bumpy ride.

The only real question is what did Sullivan and the BOV not agree on:

- future revenue for the various schools?(The med school has been underwritten by the other schools for decades. Changing the revenue stream was probably the biggest game in town.)

- global warming?(Really? Are you serious? I doubt Richmond has nothing better to do than come after UVa for their refusal to release documents.)

- fundraising?(The pres. is not supposed to be the big fundraiser, but it's still part of the game.)

The big story at this point is how badly the BOV is bungling the PR. This was not sudden; they had plenty of time to get the PR down pat.

If this was so planned and prearranged, then why was the Faculty Senate blindsided? Their words.

Oh Publeeeze...the faculty senate is nothing more than expensive hired help and not on the need to know list....They are like everyone else they find out after the fact....The faculty senate are little more than whinners and complainers... attaching way too much importance to themselves....
