I am disturbed by this story, as is Dennis. Apparently, from reading the few sources available (including several interviews with Drapela**), he simply cannot find out why his contract was not renewed. As a 'senior instructor' at OSU, he is an 'at-will' employee, and no labour laws or university strictures that attend union/faculty tenure-track professors apply, it seems. So, the guy is left with no answers to a basic question: Why was I (Drapela) let go? That on the face of it is shit. Shitt
