Citizen Party commented on Closing chapter: VQR's Genoways resigns, Waldo celebrates
Urban farmer and Betty have it spot on. The band on the Titanic comment was funny as it was tragic. People not only become their environments they reconstruct those environments on a minute by minute, day by day basis. UVA is the way it is because administrators, faculty, staff, students all...

@cville native Actually, I think we agree with each other.By no means am I suggesting that everyone at UVA is a bad. I have a background in higher education and a background in lacrosse. The intersection of the UVA good old boy, the intense lacrosse player and the sociopathic behavior of some is...

@26 world, and others, too, I suppose: In the interests of full disclosure, my wife is one of the principals in this sordid affair and I am an employee of the university. What interests me here, though, is what it means "to acknowledge Genoways' contributions to VQR and its push away from a smaller...

@Cville Eye you stated: "That woman obviously was engaging in a very sick relationship and her family, knowing this, should have sought help for her, not Starsia." And why shouldn't Universities and Colleges have police blotters reported to them? You must pay your taxes in order to keep your...

I must have missed your follow-up piece this year, however,...

Genoways left town? Too bad for him; the Darden School is hiring and he appears to be just their style. A personal thank you is also in order for Mr. Genoways. Curiosity got the better of me, so I read some of his poetry, which promptly cured my insomnia. Thanks, Ted.

Without attempting to respond to any of the comments above, it is amazing to me how thin skinned most UVA grads and faux Charlottesvillians are. It's a town and a state university. The are dozens of college towns from Hanover, NH to San Diego, CA that are much nicer than Charlottesville. I've...

Chocolate, thank you for the link. From all that's been said by others, including the late deceased, and from the look of his face, I concluded a while back that Genoways was a predator towards those beneath him and a sycophant to those above. Such people are often judged up or down based on...

Ted Genoways left a legacy, alright, just not the one he imagines.
