I don’t know Dr. Pastner and know nothing about any circumstances surrounding him.However, since this is a personnel matter and, as such, there is no way that anyone, other than the people directly involved, such as the professor and University officials, know the true facts, perhaps it would be better to simply drop this subject and move on. Endless speculation in absence of facts is irresponsible and a waste of everyone’s time. To continue to speculate and argue over this is simply not a useful activity that benefits anyone.
