I want to mention I may have never become a law professor without the support of of Mary Lu and Ruthann Robson. I recall when I was interviewing at CUNY a lifetime ago, and I was utterly bombing my interview. They could tell I was nervous, and in such a kind and non-male-like gesture, they pulled me aside and reminded my to be myself and tell my story. The advice was invaluable and helped me become the pugnacious scholar I am today. While I will not comment on the events relating to her Mary Lu's resignation, I will always appreciate her for her friendship and mentorship.
