I grew up in Lawrence and spent more than 20 years there. I graduated from the University of Kansas Journalism School and returned as an unclassified employee in 2000.
However, after more than two years of dedicated service, I was laid off by the school one week to the day that my new bride and Senator Wagle brought forth allegations against beloved professor Dennis Dailey. LJW "reporter" Dave Ranney faxed the J-School to inform them of my relationship to the hated intern (I fail to see how that's in his job description) and KU covered up all sorts of evidence. The media couldn't even report many of the things Dailey said in his class because it was considered "too graphic".
Jessica's honor's thesis was "lost". Her graduation paperwork was "lost". She was spat on on campus. We had human shit left outside our apartment. And more . . .
Others came forward who had tried to file an official complaint with the University against Dailey only to be turned away. That's why no "official" complaint had ever been made.
Anyway, you can see why my wife and I fled Lawrence where pedophilia is not promoted as a teaching tool and where we can feel safe.
