Mike Adams

Hello Professor Buckley (buckley.1@osu.edu): My name is Mike S. Adams. I am a columnist at www.TownHall.com. I am interested in writing a story on your harassment case. Could you tell me whether you actually wrote the following email?

As a gay man I have long ago realized that the world is full of homophobic, hate-mongers who, of course, say that they are not.  So, I am not shocked, only deeply saddened—and THREATENED—that such mindless folks are on this great campus.  I am ending now, with the hope that I have seriously challenged you Scott, and anyone who “thinks” as you purport to do.  You have made me fearful and uneasy being a gay man on this campus.  I am, in fact, notifying the OSU-M campus, and Ohio State University in general, that I no longer feel safe doing my job.  I am being harassed.

Thank you for your help with the story. Sincerely,

Mike S. Adams

No response from Professor Buckley.

Professor Buckley (buckley.1@osu.edu): I am still interested in your sexual harassment charge against Scott Savage, a librarian at OSU. As you know, Mr. Savage has been accused of sexual harassment for recommending certain books for a freshman reading list. Is it wrong for a librarian to recommend books? Or is it wrong for a librarian to recommend books by authors with whom you disagree? Another member of the committee (named Hannibal) said that “…no position is held off-limits at an institution like OSU.” Do you agree with her? Please respond.
