MUCH COMMENTARY ON THE ANA LIBRARIAN'S DISMISSAL

This week has brought many comments regarding the ANA's dismissal
of librarian and former historian David Sklow.  A representative
sample is shown below.

Gar Travis writes: "I am profoundly saddened by David's dismissal.
Collectors have lost their last true "hobby knowledge numismatist"
on the ANA staff. The jobs which he has held since joining the staff
of the Association have been performed with professionalism and
dedication.  As others before him who were dismissed, it was done
seemingly without cause."

David Lange writes: "The organization seems to be doing everything
it can to drive away those who care about it.  How does the ANA expect
people to feel generous toward it when the leaders keep finding
evermore ways of alienating us?"

Tom DeLorey writes: "Twenty-two years ago I quit the ANA to protest
ANACS Office Manager Mary Thompson being fired unjustly. I am sorry
to see that nothing has changed out there.

I understand that Mr. Cipoletti is asking the Board for a five-year
extension to his current contract, which does not expire until
December, 2007.  If anybody thinks that this action might not be in
the best interests of the ANA, please contact the current Board members
and give them your input. If you think that he should stay, please
express that as well."
