The Elephant in the Room (Due Process)

Thanks to Dan Schwartz for some sage advice when dealing with claims of sexual harassment.

For far too long we have tolerated a conspiracy of silence or worse, so it is not surprising that organizations now are compelled to act with dispatch when accusations surface. Its about time.
