Here's another letter, suggesting why I might have been given the boot:

Dr Tucker,

I found your story extremely distressing. If your charges of bearing false witness is true I hope the conscience of those individuals burns to cause their repentance.

On the charges of sex discrimination I remain incredulous. . . . My guess is that what you ran into had more to do with a cultural bias. Since your name isn't something like "Helen Vandersma" I'm guessing you did not grow up in the culture. If that is the case then perhaps you didn't fit the ideal of the first woman professor at CTS. Not that that excuses the behavior. It just seems like a more plausible scenario.
