VA Flaggers: W&L Update 5-8-2014

We received this note and link to a very thoughtful, well-written, and encouraging article out of W&L.  The gentleman who sent it was attending a meeting last weekend at the University...

"I picked up a copy of The Spectator, a student-run publication wondering if they had anything to say about the Committee.  They did.  The below URL is an article by its Editor in Chief which you may find of interest that probably better reflects the views of the "99%."  

The administration at Washington and Lee is reporting that they are receiving a "significant" amount of correspondence regarding the demands of "The Committee".  MANY thanks to each one of you have taken the time to express your concerns to W&L leadership.  We have received copies of many outstanding letters and appreciate those who have taken the time to do so. 

As of this writing, one meeting between W&L leadership and "The Committee" has taken place, and, thankfully, none of the "demands" were met.  We are encouraged, but feel we need to remain vigilant, and ask that the letter/email campaign continue.  If you have not done so already, please take a moment to share your thoughts.
