- It Happened To Me -
YOU CAN’T HIDE,
THERE’S A PROBLEM
When Kathy Clark, Anthropology and Sociology Academic Department Coordinator at Franklin & Marshall College, will not tell me the name of the “winner” of the Charles H. Holzinger Anthropology Award, there’s a problem. There’s a big problem and she knows it. You don’t give an award in the name of an incest perpetrator.
I spoke to Kathy yesterday by phone. She was busy at the time but was going to “find” the name of the winner for me and I told her I’d call her back later in the afternoon. Funny, when I called her back she told me she could not release that information. Yet, on our previous phone call she told me that award had already been given out. So, why is it a secret? Is Franklin and Marshall embarrassed? Will the recipient of the award be upset when he or she learns they received an award named after an incest perpetrator?
HIGHEST LEVEL OF INTEGRITY
“I want to begin by reminding you of special responsibilities you have assumed in accepting our invitation to join the Franklin & Marshall community.
“First and foremost, you are expected to exhibit the highest level of integrity in all your personal and academic endeavors. You are not only students here, you are now also representatives of an institution with a 218-year tradition of high standards of thought and behavior.”
Franklin & Marshall College President John A. Fry in his Convocation speech of August 27, 2005 (click here).
Then why don’t you exhibit integrity, Mr. Fry, and do away with the Charles H. Holzinger Anthropology Award. Why don’t you exhibit high standards of thought and behavior? Or are you hoping the Holzingers leave their million dollars to Franklin and Marshall the way you did with my uncle? Does money buy your integrity, Mr. Fry? Why do you have to hide the identity of the winner of the award? Doesn’t that strike you as ludicrous, Mr. Fry?
THEY CAN’T HIDE A PEDOPHILE
Yesterday, a former colleague of my father used the “it’s a personal, family matter” line on me. No, it most certainly is not. It is a crime. As a retired professor, he most certainly should be aware of that, as should Mr. Fry and everyone else at F&M. If they don’t know it, they should update their high standards of behavior to include the fact that incest is a crime. Someone might want to make sure Cathy Clark and the whole Anthropology Department is aware of that fact as well.
My brother, Tom, is a pedophile. He is on self-imposed exile in Africa. He can never be around my friends or family again. Yes, those gray-haired, peace-loving Quakers raised a son who molested his two brothers and who knows how many others. They are excellent actors. They’ve been doing it all of their lives. But they can’t hide a pedophile. Nope. Explain that one.
LET’S KEEP IT A SECRET
The Lancaster Friend’s Meeting House
And Franklin and Marshall College, the Lancaster Friends Meeting, the Lancaster Newspapers and the ACLU want to sweep it under the rug and hide it and call it “a personal, family matter.” Well, that isn’t going to work. I will not allow it. It is a crime that destroys families and goes on for generations, but it is so ugly no one wants to think or acknowledge that it happens. It does. It happened to me. And look at what I’ve had to do to get anyone to listen.
COMING TOMORROW – WHY DIDN’T THE LANCASTER NEWSPAPERS EVER MENTION ONE WORD ABOUT MY LAWSUIT THAT WENT TO THE SUPREME COURT OF PA? AREN’T THEY IN THE “NEWS” BUSINESS? WHAT A TANGLED, STICKY, AND NASTY WEB WE WEAVE.
