A reader alerts us to an important update on the Middlebury debacle with relevant information we haven’t seen reported elsewhere. Two or three days after the thug brigade assaulted Professor Allison Stanger, she returned to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with a concussion. The initial incident occurred March 2; we believe the concussion was diagnosed on Sunday, March 5. Below is the undated message distributed to the Middlebury community (faculty, staff, students) by Professor Stanger’s husband, political science professor Michael Kraus (a man who fled the Communists in Czechoslovakia in 1968). Here is the message from Professor Kraus as forwarded by our reader:
Subject: Re: Some thoughts on recent events
Dear Middlebury Community Members,
I write to let you know that the reason my wife Allison Stanger cannot be “listening and connecting” with all of you who have written or called is that she had to go back to Porter Hospital ER yesterday afternoon, where she was diagnosed with a concussion. As a result, she had to cancel her class and office hours today. Allison thanks you for all your notes of support and concern and hopes to respond properly when she is physically able to do so.
In the meantime, you can watch her discussion with Dr. Murray here.
Frederick C. Dirks Professor of Political Science
