Suppose They Gave a War and No One Comes

The thing with our "resigned" Country Director can now officially be considered to have blown over. He is gone from the country, back in Washington D.C. None of us will probably ever see him again. The official word from the Volunteer Action Committee is that we are moving on. We have an acting CD who will only be with us for another week or so, then a new one will arrive to take over the post. Here's hoping he's as friendly, accessible, and productive as Kumar was.

I don't think we'll be going beyond the letter campaign we held last week. The person(s) responsible for his dismissal still retain their jobs, and swear to God and all the angels that they never had anything to do with it, and they are shocked -- shocked! -- that we would ever think them capable of such a thing.

So we all cried "WAR!" last week and now it seems we're opting instead for uneasy peace. Good news for the perpetrators in admin (we know who you are). But bad news if the new CD is a buffoon, or there is any further outrageousness. I don't know how much more we could take.
