Wed Senate exec meeting w/ Pernsteiner on new Pres

12/6/2011: Starts at 9AM, blogged live to the extent possible.

Pernsteiner: Plan A is Berdahl. Will you please not blog anything about the rest of this meeting?

UO Matters: Maybe, maybe not. That’s up to the faculty.

Pernsteiner: And if the board does not appoint Berdahl president, what will you do?

Faculty:

Bloody constraint;
For if you hide the crown,
Even in your heart,
There will we rake for it.

Therefore in fierce tempest are we coming,
In thunder and in earthquake, like a Jove,
That, if requiring fail, we will compel;

And bid you, in the bowels of the Lord,
Deliver up the crown, and to take mercy
On the poor souls for whom this hungry war
Opens his vasty jaws; and on your head
Turning the widows’ tears, the orphans’ cries
The dead men’s blood, the pining maidens groans,
For husbands, fathers and betrothed lovers,
That shall be swallow’d in this controversy.

This is our claim, our threatening, and our message.
