Now that's more like it

So apparently the Schools attorney had second thoughts after firing off the previous letter to Regional Chair Farshid Hajir and sent a kinder, gentler note not too long after:

From: Gini Tate
Date: Fri, Dec 18, 2009 at 7:43 AM
Subject: Our conversation
To: Farshid Hajir
Cc: Kathy Mazur, Maria Geryk

Hello Farshid,

Thank you for the frank and open discussion the other night; I think it was very helpful.

The purpose of this email is to confirm our discussion of Wednesday, December 16th. During that discussion, I indicated that if the Committee were to review the firm, its services, costs and accessibility in good faith with an open mind, and if the Committee felt that despite everything that has transpired, it could have and/or develop trust with my firm, such that it would be a viable attorney-client relationship, then the firm would be willing and interested in being one of the firms reviewed by the legal services subcommittee.

Translation: The attorney you have under contract is a hot-headed idiot.

I'm surprised you ever thought I had any to begin with, Nitwit.

Guess the minimum weights of the typical Amherst asshole bashing Larry in this thread.

My guesses:

Moronic, whiny, bald, back stabbing *ussy whipped males: 300

Females(bearded or otherwise): 230

Egos(especially those that are bi-products of suppressed shame, hate and feelings of guilt): off the scale

No, I think this is important stuff.

My husband is an attorney and I can tell you that this behavior by this attorney is infantile and embarassing at best. No wonder thay are reviewing the contract. For any businessperson to behave as though a client is their own personal fiefdom is unconscionable and they shoud be taken at their word...the word that appeared in the first letter!

So, we're including you in the game, right, asshole?

Include whatever the Prozac inspires you to include.

Oh, and one more thing...

FCK Amherst.

"However, I've heard that superintendents are HIGHLY concerned about taking jobs in which they may be run out of town by senior administrators and principals when they try to effect change ... which is precisely the rumor that has now gone around about Alberto's departure. Interestingly, at the retreat last week, the head of the MASC advised the SC to "don't let the search get away from you -- because principals and senior administrators really like to choose their own boss." I am truly concerned about this perception."

Oh, these vipers' days are numbered, are they not?

My husband is an attorney too and I can tell you that this behavior by this attorney was not infantile and embarrassing.

Isn't everyone in Amherst an attorney?
