Just over a week ago The Underground sent a request to Dr. Sherman's Communication's Director. A response indicated that Dr. Sherman would be willing to answer a series of questions under certain circumstances. To date, no responses have been forthcoming. I am urging each of the followers of The Underground to contact Mrs. Alexander and ask that the questions posed, be answered.

Additionally (and this is the last time that this will be addressed), there are a few reasons why some comments are deleted from the blog. The first is technical, and it affects comments of all persuasions. From time to time, your comments are routed to the spam folder automatically. There, they are known to languish before being discovered and, at other times deleted. More commonly, though, the comments that are deleted fall into one of two areas:
1) Constant, non-productive, sniping between two commenters-this is a waste of everyone's time and, in short, won't be tolerated.
2) The same couple of individuals, who are unabashedly pro-Sherman (and that's fine), continually make the point that The Underground only serves to poke holes in the "vision" and strategy of the Sherman administration, without offering any alternatives. These comments are deleted because they are red herrings and simply distractions. Anyone who takes the time to read both the posts and the comments on this blog knows that both contain thoughtful and thought provoking alternatives (admittedly, not always) to what currently is pitched by the administration as effective best practices.
This blog does not purport to be one in which all points of view are given equal time and representation. If you feel as if your viewpoints are not receiving the consideration that they deserve, please, start your own blog.
