Bryan’s PR firm finally responded. In perhaps the least professional move in public relations history, their representative sent me a friend request on Facebook and started following my public posts. However, none of my questions about Bryan have been answered. Accordingly, I have given up sending questions to Bryan’s PR representatives. My remaining questions are enumerated below.

  • 7.Did Bryan pay only $30,000 salary to camp co-director Ken Turner (who has never been accused or convicted of a crime) while it was paying $48,000 to a convicted felon who was no longer running the camp? Do consultants earn more than directors? Are they given bonuses for committing felony sexual battery against teenage camp attendees?

Shortly after I composed that question, the Bryan case became eve more bizarre – as if that is possible. Their PR representative wrote saying “I am disappointed I haven¹t heard back from you. If you have time in the week ahead, I’d still welcome the opportunity to speak with you.”

In other words, Bryan’s hired PR people are now pretending that they did not receive questions #1 through #6. This is conduct to be expected of angry ex-girlfriends but not seasoned PR professionals. It doesn’t look like the Bryan PR folks Googled me before employing these childish tactics. At risk of sounding like someone’s angry ex-girlfriend, I’m disappointed.

  • 8.Was Ken Turner denied his previously accrued vacation pay when he resigned as co-director of Fort Bluff Camp?
  • 9.Is an arrest or an actual criminal conviction as a sex offender needed for an amicable break from Bryan College?
  • 10.Will Bryan College release the Fort Bluff Camp budget for the years 2010-2014 inclusive?

To be continued …
