Talking Points

Torgo has a few talking points to spur the minds of clear thinkers.

1. Is AM Town an insular or engaging community?

2. Has the law school remained an engaging (as opposed to accommodating or insular) entity? (flashback: Dean Dobranski's comments on the school philosophy being an engaging community)

3. Will the feasibility study include consideration factors such as whether the alleged fraud perpetrated by the undergrad on the US Dept of Education will have effects on the law school, or, whether the obvious mismanagement of basic school administration (e.g. - accreditation status being misrepresented) by the undergrad might cause significant problems for the law school?

4. Has the undergrad been an insular, engaging, or accommodating school?

5. Will the feasibility study include determinations on impact to current students and alumni -- especially if the law school goes in a manner consistent with every other Tom Monaghan managed endeavor?

6. Should the feasibility study consider the use of gag terms and the recent threats of tenure changes as bad for the school's future even if it doesn't move?

7. Should alumni and others in the legal community contact feasibility study consultants?

Torgo is deeply interested in your thoughts on these matters and hopes to generate some good discussion.

I think that the focus of the "anti-Monaghan" campaign (which I support) has gone awry.
1. Its failing to convince people outside of the Ave Maria community. Why is this the case? Orthodox Catholics are usually conservative, which usually means they do not like people who protest the powers that be (like it or not thats the way it is) Unfortantly, the anti-Tom folks have come off in this way, especially in advocating for "liberal" social justice positions. You should consider changing your approach.
2. There has been a lack of action, if you believe Monaghan should be taken down, do something about it, instead of griping on blogs all day. Maybe I have missed something, but I as an outsider have seen no action.
3. AMC faculty should apologize to its students and community for fiddling around while the school burned. Many students placed their futures in the hands of the faculty of AMC, and the faculty irresponsibly handled that act of trust. They chose to try and start two different schools, while students at AMC were left to fend for themselves. Recognize your own injustices!
