At Odds

To pursue those issues, Mendelsohn moved that the meeting be continued.

...
Everett Mendelsohn said his review of the previous meetings, transcripts revealed concern and dissatisfaction amounting to ,a loss of confidence., While appreciating the president,s expressed commitment to change, the issues could not be resolved by ,an apology, a smile, and a Valentine card, (a reference, perhaps, to a New Yorker cartoon of three women in a campus setting, captioned, ,I hear we,re all getting valentines from Lawrence Summers,).
...
But at a time when corporate boards are asserting their authority over executives who fail to meet goals, Harvard,s self-perpetuating Corporation ,has got to really think carefully about how they see the future,, suggested Everett Mendelsohn, a member of the Faculty Council.During the traumatic late 1960s and early 1970s, he recalled, Corporation members were ,anxious to find faculty members to talk to., ,What has struck me, now, he continued, ,is that the Corporation has really had its head in the sand, and was unaware, for instance, that women faculty members are seriously considering taking positions elsewhere. (The Corporation declined requests to discuss these issues.)
